Join us on 14th December for a Funds Academy networking breakfast at State Street International (Ireland) Limited, Kilkenny Business & Technology Park, Loughboy, Kilkenny. We would be delighted to welcome our industry partners and those working within the funds industry across the region.
What’s happening?
Come along to State Street’s offices for a chat and some breakfast and hear from Jim Power, one of Ireland’s leading and best-known economic analysts, who will be providing us with some insightful economic analysis and forecasts.
Jim is a graduate of University College, Dublin with a BA in Economics & Politics, and a Master of Economic Science Degree. During a career within the financial services industry, he has worked as Treasury Economist at AIB Group and Chief Economist at Bank of Ireland Group Treasury and Friends First Group.
In October 2000 he testified before a UK House of Lords Committee on Economic & Monetary Affairs on Ireland’s experience in EMU. He argued with prescience that the Irish political elite would not be capable of managing a small open economy in a monetary union and suggested that Britain would be ill-advised to join the Single Currency. He has taught Financial Management to under-graduates in Dublin City University; Economics on the Local Government MBA at Dublin City University and Business Economics on the Executive MBA and the Full Time MBA at the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, University College Dublin. In September 2014, he will teach Business Economics on the Full Time MSc Management at the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, University College Dublin.
He writes regular columns in both The Examiner and The Sunday Business Post online edition and contributes to numerous other newspapers and magazines on an occasional basis. He is also a frequent contributor to radio and TV on a variety of different shows.
