Nick Hubble

Nickolai Hubble is the editor of Southbank Investment Daily and chief strategist of The Fleet Street Letter Monthly Alert, which are published by Southbank Investment Research. He’s also the editor of Jim Rickards Strategic Investment in Australia and a contributing editor of The Daily Reckoning Australia.

After finishing his degrees in finance and law at Bond University in Australia in 2009, working for an investment bank didn’t seem so enticing any more. An internship with his scholarship provider Goldman Sachs during the height of the financial crisis was quite enough of that.

Instead, Nick went to work for the company which allows its analysts to predict the financial crises that investment bankers cause. The Agora is a network of publishing businesses dedicated to bringing you ideas that are too controversial to get a hearing in the mainstream press. And that’s where Nick found a very comfortable home.

In 2012 Nick exposed the sub-prime practices of Australian banks to his readers at The Money for Life Letter. His accusations that bankers and mortgage brokers routinely manipulate their customers’ loan applications were vindicated by a Royal Commission in 2018.

In 2018 Nick predicted Italy’s budget battles would lead to “Bloody October” and successfully warned his subscribers about the worst period in financial markets since 2008. In August he compiled his predictions into a book called How the Euro Dies.

Nick doesn’t just investigate financial markets and predict crises and opportunities. He’s also a flying trapeze, juggling and chin balancing performer and instructor. He’s lived in England, Ireland, Scotland, Austria, Germany, Australia, Thailand and Japan, stubbornly refusing to identify with any nationality.

Nick is the only person to have spun a plate on a stick while playing the bagpipes while swinging on a flying trapeze bar eight metres up in the air.

  • Time to dig up John Law?

    I was thinking about how it’s a shame we don’t have a new North America to discover. We could send the Royal Navy off to colonise it and then sell it off like John Law did, thereby solving the problem of the national debt. And then it hit me. The world does have such a place…

  • My wet nostril dream about Russell Napier

    What made Russell Napier so interesting is that he stuck with his prediction of prolonged deflation in the face of QE1, QE2, QE3 and so on and so forth. While many financial analysts were worrying about hyperinflation, let alone inflation, Napier said we’d see a lack of inflation. And he was right.

  • The most serious warning of my career 

    It’s finally ready… I spent most of last week getting a high-level security pass – submitting my passport to the authorities, getting an endorsement from senior political figures and even passing through airport style security. It was the culmination of…

  • “Your account has been frozen”

    It happens overnight… One day, the banks are open. The next the cashpoints go dark, the banks lock their doors and all online payment systems go down. Even online banking doesn’t work. You can see your savings… but you can’t…

  • Italian banks go boom

    Let’s do the maths. The total value of non-performing loans in the European Union is valued around €900 billion. Banks have made provisions, meaning set aside money, for about half of that. Leaving about €450 billion in questionable loans. The…
