About us

Meet our economists

When planning for the future, it’s a good idea to talk to economists who understand the economic context of your business or organisation. Give Infometrics a call – you’ll speak to an economist who has a wide range of skills and research interests, and a detailed understanding of the economic issues at work in New Zealand.
