NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Milton Ezrati, a prominent economist and author who has worked in the financial services industry for decades, has joined communications firm Vested (www.fullyvested.com) as chief economist, the firm announced today.
Ezrati most recently served as partner, senior economist, and market strategist at Lord Abbett & Co, an asset management institution with more than $125b under management. There, his roles included advising clients across the United States, Europe, and Asia on global financial issues and providing insight that drove the firm’s portfolio management strategies.
He is a contributing editor to The National Interest, a magazine that covers international affairs, and the author of two books: Kawari, which predicted Japan would evolve from an export-oriented economy to one that provides services, and Thirty Tomorrows: The Next Three Decades of Globalization, Demographics, and How We Will Live, which examines the impact that an aging population has on the world’s most developed economies. Ezrati frequently contributes to and is quoted in a variety of financial publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, and Financial Times, and appears on financial television programs providing market commentary.
“The intersection of modern media and economic thought offers both opportunities and risks for companies trying to capture a dominant share of voice. I’m happy to help Vested’s staff seize the former and avoid the latter on behalf of the firm’s clients,” Ezrati said.
“In our line of work, understanding what is happening at a macroeconomic level is imperative. As we continue to extend our service offering to meet the needs of today’s financial industry, we’re thrilled to have access to Milton’s knowledge, experience, and instincts. His analysis will provide unique value to our clients,” said Binna Kim, president and co-founder of Vested.
Vested’s client roster now includes Bloomberg, Axioma, Betterment, Citadel, Carbon TradeXchange, Contix, Golub Capital, MoneyLion, Polaris, and others.
