Outlook 2023: cautious optimism

Managing Director, Institutional Australia & PNG, ANZ

2022-12-20 00:00


We are cautiously optimistic for 2023.

Yes, it’s been a big couple of years. Yes, supply chains continue to be disrupted. And yes, we’re in the midst of a challenging interest rate and inflationary environment.

But at ANZ, we see it a little differently.

Our customers are thriving. Large companies are positioning themselves to restart investment programs and revisit mergers and acquisitions.

While financial market volatility is likely to persist for some time, companies are adjusting to volatility as the new normal.

Activity might not be as strong as in the last 18 months, but Australian corporate balance sheets are in a strong position to take advantage of opportunities on the market.


At ANZ, we remain open, active and willing to help our customers take advantage of these trends.

We’re investing in technology, providing the right support and going the ‘extra mile’ to help customers succeed remain important. We’re continuing to work with our customers on plans to lower carbon emissions as the economy transitions to net zero.

There’s no doubt 2023 will be another big year, with new challenges. But with that comes opportunities.

And ANZ is well positioned to work with customers to take advantage of those - and grow.


The economic and geopolitical factors that have shaped an unprecedented period for business around the world are not going anywhere soon. 

As 2023 looms, large organisations face a cocktail of influences impacting the way they do business: rapid digitisation, shifting supply chains, geopolitical uncertainty, and the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At ANZ Institutional, we know our customers are looking to position themselves to take advantage of these forces. 

As part of our Outlook 2023 series, we’re asking our subject-matter experts to provide insights into a range of complex areas from across more than 30 markets – helping you better understand how you can prepare for the New Year. We’ll be sharing the responses with you over the coming weeks.
