It’s been a wild journey over the past year and there is still considerable uncertainty facing the global economy.  ASB’s Chief Economist Nick Tuffley joins us to provide an economic update.

Nick Tuffley

Since starting out in 1997 as an economist, it’s fair to say Nick has seen a few hair-raising moments over the years, including the Asian Financial Crisis and the Global Financial Crisis. 

One of Nick’s strengths is his ability to communicate complex ideas in a readily understandable and entertaining way.  He thrives on helping people understand the economic environment to help enrich the quality of their business or personal life. He is proud to lead a team that has won three Forecast Accuracy Awards from Consensus Economics, and has a strong track record with their Official Cash Rate and dairy price forecasts. 

Nick grew up in Christchurch and graduated with a Master of Commerce degree from the University of Canterbury.  He learned his economic ropes at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand before a long stint as a Senior Economist at Westpac. He joined ASB as Chief Economist in 2007.
