Medley Global Advisors, a research provider to hedge funds, asset managers, investment banks and governments, has hired Michael Schetzel as a strategist for its client team and Gustavo Rangel as a Latin America analyst in its emerging markets group.
Schetzel previously served as a strategist for Bridgewater Associates, the world’s third-largest hedge fund. Before that he worked for nine years at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he was chief dealer of the foreign exchange and investment desk.
Rangel joined MGA from Barclays Capital's emerging markets research group, where he provided research and analysis of central banks, fiscal policy, and domestic politics of the Latin America region. Before that he was an equity analyst at Banco Boreal in Brazil.
"Both candidates bring a powerful understanding in their respective areas of the interplay between the policy world and the financial markets that is so critical to our firm and to our clients," said Sassan Ghahramani, MGA's CEO. "Michael will be able to draw on his experience at the Federal Reserve and at Bridgewater, one of the largest global hedge funds, to connect the dots between monetary policy developments and potential investment strategies for clients. Gustavo will be able to draw on his experience as Latin America analyst to identify and handicap the major economic and political developments in the region that clients need to be watching out for. We are very excited to have both of them on our team."
