Olivier Desbarres – Welcome to my Website

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Olivier Desbarres.

Olivier Desbarres

I am an independent G10 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 two of the world’s largest investment banks, with whom I worked in Moscow, London and Singapore.

While working with these banks, I focused on Emerging Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific. I also wrote extensively on EU and eurozone membership and the UK interest rate market.

I hold an MSc from the London School of Economics and a BA in Economics from the University of Cambridge. You can learn more about me on the ‘About Olivier Desbarres’ page.

This website has been set up to provide you with my views and forecasts on the latest news, events and trends from the world of finance. All the research on this website has been carried out by myself, but it is not intended to be taken as investment advice – I encourage you to do your own due diligence before investing.

My flagship in-depth publication is the Fixed Income Research and Macro Strategy (FIRMS) and includes surveys, video-presentations and my ‘Big Picture’ guides which take a birds-eye view of macro and market developments across the developed and emerging market spectrum. All my guides are available to download in PDF format and can be found on my guides page.
