Nick Parsons back to address the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle

Eminent market analyst Nick Parsons returns to Ayr in a fortnight’s time to update members of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle about the current state of the international financial markets, and the Scottish, UK and world economies.


Members who were privileged to have been at the Circle meetings addressed by Nick Parsons (pictured above) on previous occasions will be relishing the opportunity of hearing his no-nonsense, no-holds-barred approach to economic realities once again.

Nick Parsons will be speaking at the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle meeting on Tuesday 8 March 2011 at 11.30am. The meeting will be held in the boardroom of the Clydesdale Bank Financial Solutions Centre in Alloway Street, Ayr, kindly arranged and hosted by managing partner Willie Mackie (pictured below). A buffet lunch will be provided.


Clydesdale Bank Financial Solutions Centre managing partner Willie Mackie said: “I am delighted to welcome Nick Parsons back to Ayrshire. Nick’s visit is very timely indeed given the multitude of factors which are impacting the economic situation. His update will be relevant to all businesses across Ayrshire & Arran, and based on previous experience his presentation will trigger much lively debate and discussion.”


Norman Geddes (pictured above) is senior partner at Ayr-based Frazer Coogans Commercial Solicitors and executive chairman of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle. He commented: “We look forward to welcoming Nick back to address the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle. He is an inspirational speaker with the uncanny knack of making economics comprehensible and even rather fascinating.

“More important, none of us knows exactly what challenges businesses may still face before the UK and other world economies return to full health. But what is certain is that we will all have a much clearer idea when we hear what Nick has to say on Tuesday 8 March.”

Nick Parsons joined National Australia Bank in 2007.

He is currently Head of Research UK & Europe and Global Head of Foreign Exchange Strategy.

He has over 25 years experience in foreign exchange and global money markets.
