Macquarie Group’s (“Macquarie”) Macro Strategy team – part of Macquarie’s Commodities and Global Markets Group – has announced the expansion of its global client offering, with additional capabilities in both Asia and Europe.
Macquarie’s Macro Strategy team is led by the Group’s Chief Economist Ric Deverell from Sydney, Australia and provides macro insight and expertise across economics, commodities, foreign exchange (FX) and interest rates for clients globally.
Macquarie continues to invest in its global coverage model adding two further FX specialists, Trang Le, in Hong Kong and Eimear Daly, in London. Both will work closely with FX Strategists Gareth Berry in Singapore and Thierry Wizman in New York, along with Macquarie’s leading Commodity Desk Strategy team led by Tom Price in London.
Ms. Le and Ms. Daly will also work with our Economics experts, Chief China Economist Larry Hu in Hong Kong, Justin Fabo in Sydney, and David Doyle in Toronto. They both bring a wealth of experience, Ms. Le was previously Vice President, Asia Economics and FX Strategy at Credit Suisse in Singapore and Hong Kong and Ms. Daly was previously a G10 FX Strategist at Standard Chartered Bank.
Ric Deverell, commented: “As international markets face increasingly uncertain times, the role for specialist strategic insight to mitigate, or simply help navigate the various and often conflicting macroeconomic drivers has never been greater.”
“Reflecting the global nature of our business and client base, it is increasingly important to have global coverage for FX markets. With the additional expertise of Trang and Eimear, we are now able to provide our clients in each of the major time zones valuable insight through localised expertise and timely commentary.”
