Wealth manager Charles Stanley has appointed Jeremy Batstone-Carr (pictured) as Chief Global Economist to further develop its international economic research capacity.
In this newly formed role, Batstone-Carr will work closely with John Redwood, the firm’s Chief Global Strategist to create coordinated thematic regional and sectoral analyses and viewpoints. Jeremy also lectures widely to both US and UK academic institutions and is a visiting practicing Professor at the University of West England.
Batstone-Carr has been at Charles Stanley for 12 years and was previously Chief Economist, responsible for oversight of global asset allocation and investment strategy, as well as running a dedicated team of analysts specialising in analysis of a wide range of UK listed companies, investment trusts and investment vehicles.
Batstone-Carr has over 30 years of experience in the industry, joining Charles Stanley in 2004. Prior to this he was head of research at NatWest Stockbrokers and Fyshe Group and was also responsible for helping build a research department at Coutts.
Batstone-Carr says: “Charles Stanley has some fantastic resources and this position allows me to take the firm’s economics research to a global level. I look forward to demonstrating Charles Stanley’s high level competence in the research field and hopefully attracting new clients to the business.”
Christopher Aldous, Head of Asset Management at Charles Stanley, says: “Jeremy has established a reputation for thoughtful and thought‐provoking research. He has done an excellent job in terms of economic reporting and commentary and this is an appropriate point for him to step up the intensity and global perspective of the firm’s economics research.”
