Former CEO of Medley Global Advisors, Sassan Ghahramani announced earlier this week the official launch of SGX Advisors, a foreign exchange and global macro intelligence and trading firm. SGX will combine policy, economic and market intelligence across developed and developing countries to provide insight to hedge funds and other asset managers.
“We are living in a world where a Dubai debt restructuring affects gold and UK stocks, where Chinese economic policy impacts Euro/Yen and Australian bonds, and where Fed comments can drive the Mexican Peso as much as the US Treasury curve,” said Ghahramani, President and CEO. “Most analysts, strategists, and economists are limited in their ability to properly anticipate or react to such macro linkages due to soiled information, narrow specialization, or institutional conflicts and constraints.”
Thus, SGX plans to focus on these connections through analyzing intelligence on central bank policy, macroeconomics, geopolitics, currency, and interest rate markets from all over the world. The firm will also offer clients foreign exchange and fixed income trade execution through a partnership with the independent institutional broker dealer Arbor Research and Trading.
SGX will provide its services to a limited number of clients. Integrity Research has identified more than thirty independent research firms providing political intelligence and policy research. SGX Advisors is another addition to this category.
