Frank is a forecaster. He frequently speaks on prospects for the economy and property markets. He is noted for sticking his neck out and saying what he thinks will happen, even when that view is unpopular or controversial. The focus is on how things will change, what that means for different market participants and what they should do about it.

His objective is to think beyond the current circumstances, to understand the consequences of economic behaviour. In a cyclical environment, the task is to understand sustainability, to understand how markets will develop on the logic of the players and how market logic will change as circumstances and perceptions evolve, to predict turning points, to understand what happens next.

Frank has special interest in economic issues and forecasting; prospects for industry sectors; cycles in activity driven by investment and demand &, in particular, property cycles; economic assessment and evaluation of financial consequences of alternatives, and; investment strategy.

Frank regularly conducts briefings and workshops to facilitate clients' discussion of changing market conditions and associated strategy issues, alternatives and actions.
