A Business Breakfast with 

John Woods

Managing Director of Credit Suisse and
Chief Investment Officer Asia Pacific

There are signs global growth is slowing, the US Federal Reserve is signalling a pause in their interest rate hikes and the Reserve Bank of Australia has flagged potential cuts in our cash rate.  We may be at an inflexion point for investment and capital markets.  Are equities the best place to invest given what the global economy may have in store for us in 2019?  Mr Woods will explore recent global developments and the impacts and opportunities these bring for investors and their appetite for equity.

John Woods is a Managing Director of Credit Suisse and Chief Investment Officer Asia Pacific, responsible for developing regional discretionary and advisory investment strategies across asset classes and within asset classes for private and institutional clients in Asia Pacific. Mr. Woods is a voting member of the Global Investment Committee of Credit Suisse and Chair of the Regional Investment Committee in Asia Pacific.

Prior to joining Credit Suisse in September 2015, Mr. Woods was Managing Director and Head of Fixed Income Asia Pacific for Citi Investment Management. Before that, he served as the Chief Investment Strategist, Asia Pacific at Citi Private Bank and was a voting member of the Global Investment Committee.

Mr. Woods brings 25 years' investment management experience in Asia fixed income and currency markets, with special focus on portfolio management, trading and research.

Among his previous roles, he was HSBC Global Market's UK-based Global Head of Credit Research and Strategy; and Head of Absolute Return Proprietary Trading.
