Understanding how to navigate volatile markets will be critical for participants in 2023, according to Jimmy Choi, Head of Capital Markets at ANZ Institutional.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 2023 ANZ Debt Conference, Choi said the themes of the conference had focussed on ongoing market volatility and what that means for participants across bond and loan markets, both locally and offshore.

 “The year was very difficult but in 2023, the outlook is [just] as murky,” he said.

“The new terminology of ‘polycrisis’ has come up [at the conference], which means many different faceted, multi-dimensional crises that we're facing in the globe.”


ANZ Senior Economist Catherine Birch said China’s economy would be an important factor in 2023, particularly given the country’s recent reopening after COVID restrictions.

“There are still some medium to longer-term structural challenges,” Birch said. “It was really interesting to hear [ANZ Greater China Chief Economist Raymond Yeung’s] insights on China, particularly because that's so important for Australia's economy.”

Robyn Bedil, Director, Debt Capital Markets at ANZ, said the insights were valuable from her perspective as an international attendee.

“It's been great to meet a lot of the Australian issuers as well as the Australian investors and to hear about their views relative to the American investors,” she said.

Natasha Kemp, ANZ Director – Food Beverage & Agribusiness, said it was clear from the conference sustainability was no longer an adjacency of debt, and has been integrated into business as usual.

“It's really good to see our customers talk about sustainability in a holistic way,” she said.

Over 300 people attended the ANZ Debt Conference. Now in its 13th year, the conference is the most prominent and largest of its kind in Australia.
