Kardinia podcast: What happens when a bank fails

Kardinia Capital

March 2023

Kristiaan Rehder talks to Bennelong Fund Management's Stuart Fechner about the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank and its impact on Australia, the flavour of the recent reporting season, and the ongoing effect of rising interest rates and inflation.

"If we'd had this conversation three weeks ago, I would have said to you the interest rate futures are predicting maybe an 80 or 100 basis points increase in interest rates through to the end of the year. If we look at it today, the Australian futures market is indicating no further increases and then cuts of around 20 basis points at the end of the year. So if you're a mortgage owner, you have a lot of cause for celebration."
