A sit down discussion led by David Wyss who will present his views on both the local and global economic outlook.

There are still unanswered questions about the direction of the global markets with the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve recently stating that current circumstances are “unusually uncertain”. In the US the financial reform bill has been enacted and greater regulation is the theme across the globe. So, how will the uncertainty and the shift to greater regulation in global markets impact on our economies?
