Steven Englander has joined Standard Chartered as G10 head of FX research and North American macro strategy.
Based in New York, this new appointment comes shortly after Profit & Loss reported earlier this month that Englander has left his role at Rafiki Capital, an investment advisor based in Hong Kong that specialises in global macro strategy.
Englander has been with Rafiki since June 2017, prior to which he spent seven years at Citi, where he was head of G10 FX strategy in the bank’s New York office.
Englander has also worked as the chief FX strategist for the Americas at Barclays Capital and spent eight years with Citibank/Salomon Smith Barney, where he was global currency economist based in London.
Before moving to the private sector, Englander spent four years at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development as the principal economist in the Economic Prospects Division, covering preparations for European Monetary Union, among other assignments.
During his career he also worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he was senior research officer and head of the Domestic Research Department. There, he was responsible for the New York Fed’s US economic research, its economic forecasts and was also the briefing officer to the president of the New York Fed prior to FOMC meetings.
