Faulkner-MacDonagh will be responsible for analysing the primary drivers across all major asset classes.  With over 17 years’ experience in the investment industry, Faulkner-MacDonagh joins from Ziff Brothers Investments where he held the post of Senior Economist.  Prior to this, Chris held posts at the International Monetary Fund and the US Treasury Department.  Based in Edinburgh, Faulkner-MacDonagh will report directly to the Head of Global Strategy, Andrew Milligan.

Ale Wolf x will analyse the key emerging markets, such as China and India, and help to expand Standard Life Investments’ understanding of the global business cycle. He has eight years of investment experience and joins from the US State Department, where he served as a US Diplomat in Beijing and Taipei. Prior to that, he held posts at BAE Systems and Lehman Brothers.  Also based in Edinburgh, Alex will report to Jeremy Lawson, Chief Economist.

Guy Stern, Head of Macro and Multi-Asset Investing at Standard Life Investments, says: “Chris and Alex will complement the spectrum of investment knowledge and expertise currently held by our Multi-Asset team, deepening our understanding of emerging markets and the major asset classes.  Their arrival will help to support Standard Life Investments’ House View, which has added significant value to our client’s portfolios for many years.  I welcome them to the Strategy team and very much look forward to working closely with them.”
