King's Wins Monetary Policy Competition

Congratulations to the King’s College Monetary Policy Team who won the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Monetary Policy Challenge in Wellington last night, Wednesday, 12 August.

In June the team of Martin Luk (Governor), Amanda Ngo, Jake McConnell, Shaan Keesha and Amay Aggarwal qualified for the national final along with five other schools from a total pool of 40.  These finalists were then required to make a 10 minute presentation on their OCR decision to three bank economists including Deputy Governor John McDermott, as well as participating in a 20 minute question and answer session.

Well done to these students and Head of Economics, Mark Johnston.
