Olivier Desbarres – Welcome to my Personal Website

Olivier Desbarres

My name is Olivier Desbarres. I am a G20 and emerging markets economist, rates and currency strategist, passionate about getting to the heart (and truth) of the matter.

My experience includes 15 years with Credit Suisse and Barclays in Moscow, London and Singapore (1998-2012) as a senior Economist, Rates and FX strategist.

After leaving investment banking I ran a respected Macro & FX Research website, with 2,000 subscribers in 77 countries who worked for, amongst others, Fortune 500, FTSE-100 and S&P 500 companies and some of Europe’s largest corporations.

I subsequently founded 4X Global Research, a London-based Macro & FX Research consultancy providing institutional and corporate clients with focused, actionable, independent and connected research on Emerging and G20 fixed income and FX markets and economies.

I hold a Master of Science in the Political Economy of Transition in Europe from the London School of Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Cambridge. I am fluent in both English and French.
