About Stephen

“Stephen Koukoulas is one of Australia’s leading economic visionaries, past Chief Economist of Citibank and Senior Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister. ...”

Stephen Koukoulas has a rare and specialised professional experience over more than 25 years as an economist in government, as Global Head of economic and market research and a Chief Economist for two major banks.

Few economists have both the global and local experience of Stephen Koukoulas. His background covers the spectrum of economic insight – from his role as Chief Economist of Citibank, Global Head of research and strategy for TD Securities in London to Senior Economic Advisor to the Australian Prime Minister.

Stephen’s combination of both public and private sector provides an unparalleled insight into the opportunities and risks of today’s markets. As a speaker Stephen has been called upon to discuss the economy with audiences as diverse as the corporate world to school students – an affirmation of his ability to turn complex economic analysis into terms mere mortals can understand.

In these uncertain financial times, Stephen provides tailored economic overviews and analysis with a level of humour and engagement not usually associated with the subject.

Stephen has recently released his latest book Myth-Busting Economics: A No-nonsense Guide to Your Money, Your Business and the Australian Economy. Economics dominates the news, but figuring out what is really important is no easy task. At last, this myth-busting book clears the air and gives you the facts you really need to be ready for the future. Contact us to have Stephen share his economic insight for your next event.
