Connie Bolland
Chief Economist at Economic Research Analysis


Connie Bolland, ERA's founder and chief economist, has been in the economic analysis and research field for four decades. She offers economic advice to corporate chiefs, leading customised research projects for clients, giving presentations and moderate discussions. She also specialises in analysing and advising clients on global and Asian economic trends and outlook, including Hong Kong and China, and their implications to investment and business strategies.

Prior to this, she spent three years with the Economist Group as the regional economist of its Economist Corporate Network unit, having served for ten years in the 90s for global investment banks, including being head of non-Japan economic research for Lehman Brothers based in Tokyo and head of Asian research for HSBC Asset Management based in Hong Kong.  

For five and a half years, Connie co-hosted an English radio programme on RTHK “Money Talk” on Tuesdays, giving her views and analysis on the latest financial and economic developments around the world. It was one of the top two most listened to English programmes in Hong Kong.

Connie was a part-time member of the Central Policy Unit, the Hong Kong Government’s think-tank, advising the governor from May 1995 to October 1996, and the HKSAR Chief Executive from November 1997 to May 1998  on major socioeconomic and political matters for policy decisions. She has also spoken widely on media and in conferences/seminars in many major cities in the world.

Connie holds an MBA and a Bachelor of Social Sciences degree in Economics and Statistics (First Class Honours) from the University of Hong Kong. She was also qualified as an independent non-executive director (INED) having completed and passed a directorship programme run by the University of Hong Kong and Harvey Nash.
