Your Wealth

How high rates can go, and what it means for your portfolio

February 15, 2022

Talk of rising interest rates is making markets jumpy. But how high are rates expected to go, how quickly, and what are the likely impacts?

nab Markets Head of Research Ivan Colhoun has spent a lifetime watching rates, and shares his analysis on:

  • What ‘normal’ interest rates look like, and how quickly we’re likely to get there
  • How seriously we need to take rising inflation
  • Why Australia differs from the US, and other large economies, and
  • How rising rates will affect businesses, consumers and markets around the world.
