Event- Westpac Economic Update and Lunch

Westpac, in conjunction with Whanganui & Partners, the Whanganui Chamber of Commerce and Te Manu Atatu, are hosting an economic talk and lunch at the Cooks Garden Event Centre from noon to 2:30pm on 23 May.

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP by 20th May (this helps us plan the catering and ensures everyone gets lunch!).

At the event, Westpac’s Senior Economist Satish Ranchhod will present an economic update as well as an update on the Westpac Business Growth Grants.

Satish, a Whanganui local, will be providing an update on economic developments in both Whanganui and the nation as a whole, and talk about how he see things going forward.

Satish joined Westpac’s Economics team as a Senior Economist in October 2014. His work focuses on inflation, as well as developments in New Zealand’s household and construction sectors.

Prior to joining Westpac, he was an adviser at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Much of his career has focused analysing and forecasting the New Zealand economy, with a particular focus on inflation.

Satish has also spent time as an economic researcher, leading the Reserve Bank’s analysis of the economic effects of the Canterbury earthquakes and its analysis of the global economy during the financial crisis.
