ABE Webinar - A step-change in the financing task - ONLINE ONLY
From: Thursday July 30, 2020, 1:30 pm
To: Thursday July 30, 2020, 2:30 pm
Australian Business Economists (ABE) are pleased to present a briefing and discussion with:
Mr Rob Nicholl - Chief Executive Officer - Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM)
How did the combination of financial market disruption and the onset of a pandemic impact the AOFM? A step-change in the financing task with minimal notice has required ‘rewriting’ the issuance approach, one that had otherwise appeared comfortable with the market maintenance mode. What does the issuance change look like, how should it be interpreted, and what did we learn from the events of March-April?
Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30
Venue: By Zoom webinar only. Details provided on registration
Cost: Free of charge for members, $25 for non-members
