Economist Lecture Series : Stephen Miller, Managing Director, BlackRock Other events...
On a size-adjusted basis, economics is more important in Australia than many other countries including the US and the UK. As part of UWA’s long history of producing economists who go on to have successful careers, the new Economist Lecture Series fills a gap in the understanding of what an economics degree can lead to. The lectures provide an appreciation of the value placed on the degree by business, government, academia, etc., supply insights into what economists actually do in practice and offer guidance to future opportunities for aspiring economists.

Prominent leaders who commenced their careers with a degree in economics will present the lectures to the UWA community. Stephen Miller is a Managing Director at BlackRock, the world’s largest investment manager. Stephen is Head of Australian and New Zealand Fixed Income and Cash and part of the Lead Portfolio Management Group for European and non-US Fixed Income.

Stephen graduated with a First Class Honours degree from UWA in 1983 and began his career in Canberra with the Federal Treasury in the same year. He subsequently joined the private staff of the then Federal Treasurer, the Hon Paul Keating MP, in 1985. Stephen completed his Masters Degree in Economics from the London School of Economics in 1989 before returning to Sydney to take up a position at Bankers Trust. At Bankers Trust (later Principal Global Investors) he held a number of positions in New York and Sydney before being made Head of the Domestic and International Fixed Income Investment team. In 2002 he assumed his current role at what was Merrill Lynch Investment Managers now BlackRock.
