                 One lady had withdrawn all of her money from the bank, some AUD $160,000, and came to the Mint to buy gold. I realised we were                                                          experiencing the start of the bank run” – Bron Suchecki, remembering the GFC, and its impact on the gold market.

                 It might only seem like yesterday, but this weekend just gone marked the 10-year anniversary of the fall of Lehman Brothers, a pivotal moment                         in what we all now remember as the Global Financial Crisis. Stock markets plunged, real estate crashed, interest rates were cut to zero and central                  banks began printing money like crazy. The world has never been the same since.

                  At this year’s Symposium, we’re going to look back at that era and ask those working ‘on the ground’ in financial and precious metal markets what                       they remember most from that period of unprecedented volatility. Most importantly, we’ll explore the ongoing risks in financial markets today, and                   the threats to investor wealth in the coming years. Make sure you don’t miss out on this must-watch panel. For tickets, go to
