David de Garis – Director & Senior Economist, Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities Product & Markets, National Australia Bank
Dave is a Director and Senior Economist with NAB Global Markets Research. He joined Nab in August 2005.
His bread and butter work is as a business, treasury or financial markets economist, speaking with clients ranging from the Bank’s SME and corporate clients as well as to institutional clients at home and abroad. This interchange of ideas with clients provides him with an invaluable source of timely and granular information “from the coal face” and very much helps to form his view on how the economy is travelling and is likely to perform. He’s a regular visitor not only to the capital cities and regional locations.
He’s also a key economic opinion and analytical writer for the Bank’s daily and weekly economics and market reports, including his work with media. You may have heard him first thing in the morning on ABC News Radio, or seen him on Sky News, Sky Business, ABC TV, ABC24 Digital, CNBC, Bloomberg TV, ABC TV, as well as with other TV, radio and the print media. He’s a key contributor to research postings on NAB’s financial market web site, www.nab.com.au/financialmarkets.com.au
Dave did his economics apprenticeship with federal governments of various persuasions in Canberra, before he left Canberra in the late 1980s. He finished his indenture in Canberra as a senior economic adviser in the then Prime Minister Bob Hawke’s Department in Canberra, and before that in the Federal Treasury and the Bureau of Statistics.
