Jonathan Pain's Biography

Jonathan Pain has over 30 years of international investment experience, having led investment teams in London, Bahrain and Australia.

 

Jonathan holds a joint honours degree in Economics and Politics from Keele University and a Masters degree in Finance and Investment from Exeter University. He is the author of a widely read investment newsletter, The Pain Report, and is well known for his contrarian views and a regular speaker at conferences and seminars.

 

He is the author and publisher of a widely read investment newsletter, The Weekly Pain Report. He is well known for his contrarian views and is a regular guest on CNBC TV and speaks at conferences and seminars all around the world. Jonathan is a member of the Advisory Council of China Matters.

 

In 2005 and 2006, in numerous speeches and articles, he warned of the unsustainable levels of debt and the housing bubble in America and his warnings of the impending crisis have been acknowledged by respected commentators such as Alan Kohler and Graham Rich.

 

In 2009 he said that we all faced a New Reality and that the world was divided between those nations that were submerging and those that were emerging and in 2010 suggested we needed an IMF (Intergalactic Monetary Fund) to bail out Greece and that default was inevitable.

 

The Pain Report provides you with a regular commentary on the key events which will shape and define the world you live in, over the years and decades ahead. It is my view, that the world is increasingly divided between those nations that are submerging and those that are emerging, which I have called the new reality. The submerging nations will spend less and save more and the emerging will spend more and save less. The Pain Report will provide you with an independent and objective perspective of the global economy in an attempt to help you navigate through the extraordinary times ahead.

 

He has repeatedly said over the last several years that the most significant and defining economic phenomenon of our lifetime is the rise of the Asian middle classes and they will shape and define our economic destiny for decades to come.

 

Having delivered hundreds of speeches over the last 25 years he has received a lot of feedback but for the sake of brevity here are just a few.
“Why can’t all economists be as interesting and easy to listen to?”
“Excellent presentation-best I ever heard “
“Probably the most entertaining and professional presentation since I have been in TEC “


Having been born in South Africa and lived in Lesotho, Swaziland, England and Bahrain, Jonathan now calls Australia home.
