Leading Economist

Stephen Kouklouas as had more than 25 years as an economist in government and as Global Head of economic and market research. He has been Chief Economist for two major banks and economic advisor to the Prime Minister. 

Stephen’s combination of both public and private sector provides an unparalleled insight into the opportunities and risks of today’s markets. As a speaker Stephen has been called upon to discuss the economy with audiences as diverse as the corporate world to school students - an affirmation of his ability to turn complex economic analysis into terms mere mortals can understand.

In these uncertain financial times, Stephen combines tailored economic overview and analysis with a level of humour and engagement not usually associated with the economics. 

Stephen is a graduate of the ANU following which he gained an unique insight into the workings of government as an economist in the Commonwealth Treasury during the late 1980s and early 1990s. In Treasury, Stephen worked in areas covering economic forecasting, monetary policy analysis, current economic conditions and the international economy.
