christophe barraud's creative blog on DashBurst. After a Master II in Finance, I wrote a thesis in Financial Economics at Paris-Dauphine University (France). Although I enjoyed my time in the academic sphere, the overly theoretical framework and the lack of daily risk-taking led me to pursue a career as a market economist. Being also passionate about macroeconomics, I chose to adapt my models and methodology to the forecasting of economic statistics (growth, inflation, unemployment rate, etc.). This forecasting work has been very useful in extending my field of expertise to that of strategist. Chief Economist and Strategist at Market Securities since 2011, I have been awarded by Bloomberg the title of Top Forecaster of the U.S. Economy (since 2012), Eurozone Economy (since 2015) and Chinese Economy (since 2017). - christophe barraud
