Kiwibank’s Chief Economist, Jarrod Kerr, will be our speaker for the August 2019 members meeting.
Jarrod will be giving us an overview of where the NZ Economy is going and what is happening internationally.
Jarrod was born and schooled in NZ,but has spent his entire career overseas, namely in US, Swiss and Australian banks. “I’ve got international perspective, but I’m also entirely familiar with the Kiwi market. When I first started as an economist at JP Morgan my role was to cover Australia and they threw in New Zealand as a training ground. Over time New Zealand became my speciality.”
Financial literacy and encouraging Kiwis to save more is high on his priority list, as is social responsibility and the environment.He consider's himself “green at heart”; a great fit for a green bank.”
