Is This A Property Bubble And Will It Burst? Nz$31 Billion Man To Give Answers

With NZ $31 billion (AU$27 billion) under his control, Dr Doug McTaggart, CEO of the Queensland Investment Corporation, has some views on property and the international investment market which he will be sharing at his key note address at the up coming New Zealand Property Institute conference being held at the Hyatt Hotel, Auckland, on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th July 2003.

New Zealand Property Institute CEO, Conor English said today, "Dr McTaggart, will use NZ, Australian and international data to talk about whether or not we are seeing a global/Australian/NZ property bubble, what the impact of the recent equity bubble has been, and what drives decisions to invest in either property or equity.

His presentation will also focus on global economic conditions as a key driver in these markets and economies. Being responsible for over NZ$31 billion he needs to have a rough idea of what is going on! He will bring a global perspective but with local knowledge to what is driving property forward, and what is happening with "the bubble"," Mr English concluded.

Dr McTaggart has held various positions as an academic economist, most recently Professor of Economics and Associate Dean at Bond University.
