Bring in the Experts – Reserve Bank Deputy Governor & GM of Financial Stability – Geoff Bascand

We are delighted to be joined by Geoff Bascand, Deputy Governor and General Manager of Financial Stability for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.  They are due to release the first Financial Stability Report of the year on Wednesday 27th May. The Deputy Governor will present an assessment of the soundness and efficiency of the New Zealand financial system, and the risks and challenges it is currently facing.

Areas of interest to advisers will be the impact of Covid-19 on the world economy and New Zealand, financial market developments and interest rates, business lending, LVR considerations, house price inflation and household sector indebtedness, the soundness of New Zealand’s banks and the insurance sector, just to name a few.

Geoff Bascand oversees the Reserve Bank’s Financial Stability functions, forming and implementing policies to promote a sound and efficient financial system,  regulating and supervising financial institutions, and collecting and reporting financial data and statistics.

Before joining the Bank, Geoff was the Government Statistician and Chief Executive of Statistics New Zealand. He had previously worked in senior management roles in the Department of Labour and the New Zealand Treasury, and was a staff economist at the International Monetary Fund.

Geoff has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in Geography from the University of Otago and a Master of Economics from the Australian National University.
