** More about Me:
Carlos Galindo is an economist with experience in both sell side and buy side firms.
Carlos has taken a keen interest in global macro issues, such as tracking global growth and inflation. For example, he has implemented a framework for assessing current economic conditions of the global EM business cycle, and co-authored recurrent reports on big-picture EM growth developments. In addition, he has helped develop a framework to asses underlying inflationary pressures in Emerging Markets, using data from 87 EM countries, together with global food and other commodity prices, with mixed frequencies, while implementing novel methods of variable selection for dynamic factor models.
In his last post at a large investment bank, he joined the Emerging Markets research team, a group responsible for coverage of global macro, local rates, foreign exchange and credit.
He was responsible for co-authoring flagship macro weekly and monthly publications, helping craft timely assessments of macroeconomic developments in specific parts of the local EM compound, with special emphasis on monetary policy, economic activity drivers, balance of payments, inflation, debt dynamics, foreign exchange and macro-relevant political developments.
Carlos has successfully covered an ample spectrum of tasks, from briefing in macro morning calls, to client facing, to research writing, to the development and application of rigorous quantitative techniques, extracting signals and generating predictions with consequences for asset trading.
Currently he’s working on developing methods of variable selection for now-casting models; continues to adapt small semi-structural, forward-looking dynamic models for small open economies; and is developing robust methods that give early turning point signals in a variety of macro and financial settings.
In addition to that, he continues to explore, adapt and learn new quantitative techniques, and keeps abreast with new developments in the fields of macroeconomic theory, time series, forecasting, big data analysis and more.
Carlos holds a Master of Arts degree in Economics from the City College of New York, CUNY. He has published research in peer-reviewed journals and is the recipient of numerous scholarships and academic awards.
