Testimonials for Saul Eslake

"Saul is an excellent presenter, once again exceptional"

Morgan & Banks

 

"Saul was an outstanding success with our clients.  His presentations were truly impressive – being able to put recent events into perspective, explain why things have happened the way they have and give soundly based views on where things might go in the future.

During the day Saul presented three times to different groups, barely without drawing breath – an amazing effort !

Saul was a delight to work with and was very accommodating with participating in three media interviews while in Adelaide – much appreciated. Having Saul involved with our annual Economic Update to our clients was a real plus for the William Buck brand."

William Buck

Saul Eslake's Biography

Most experienced and respected economist Saul Eslake has worked as an economist in the Australian financial markets for more than 25 years, including as Chief Economist at McIntosh Securities (a stockbroking firm) in the late 1980s, Chief Economist (International) at National Mutual Funds Management in the early 1990s, and as Chief Economist at the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) from 1995 to 2009. Saul is currently Chief Economist of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Australia.

 

It was Saul’s job to look at vast reams of economic data and make sense of it. He has a knack for explaining economics in terms mere mortals can understand, which is why he is always in such high demand as a speaker and commentator.

 

Saul took a break from the financial markets between July 2009 and December 2011, during which time he worked part-time as Director of the Productivity Growth Program at the Grattan Institute, a ‘think tank’ affiliated with Melbourne University, and as a freelance writer, speaker and consultant. Saul returned to the financial markets in his current role as Chief Economist of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Australia in December 2011.

 

Saul is also a non-executive director of Hydro Tasmania, the largest renewable energy producer in Australia; and a member of the National Housing Supply Council (which produces long-run estimates of the demand for and supply of housing) and the Australian Statistics Advisory Council (the external advisory body to the Australian Bureau of Statistics).

 

He has at different times in the past been a Chair of the Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board; a board member of the Australian Business Arts Foundation and the University of Tasmania Foundation; a member of the Howard Government’s Foreign Affairs and Trade Policy Advisory Councils, and of the Rudd Government’s Long-Term Tourism Strategy Steering Committee; and a member of the Steering Committee established by the Tasmanian Government to prepare a business case for a Tasmanian team in the AFL.

 

He has also been an occasional contributor to the Melbourne Age, Sydney Morning Herald and Launceston Examiner newspapers, and to a number of professional and other magazines.

 

Saul presents a well-researched and clear economic picture highly relevant to audiences and

corporations. He customises each presentation to specifically suit the audience and industry.
