RGE Adds Fortress Vet To Lead Asian Team

Mar 4 2014 | 6:35am ET

Roubini Global Economics has hired Donald Hanna as managing director in Asia. In his new role at the global macro-research firm, Hanna is tasked with leading RGE’s newly established Singapore office.

Hanna was previously with Fortress Investment Group, where he advised on global macro trends, with a particular focus on Asia. Before joining Fortress, he worked for Citigroup Global Markets for nearly 10 years, ending his tenure there as acting chief economist.

“Don is an extremely talented individual whom I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since we were both earning our PhDs at Harvard University,” said Nouriel Roubini, chairman of the firm whose clients include many of the word’s top hedge funds and asset management firms. “I’m excited to welcome him to the RGE family and am certain that his talents will be a complement to the strength of our existing research team.”

Richard Green, CEO, added, “As part of our continued effort to improve the global reach and accessibility of our offering, we aim to establish a larger presence in Asia. Having Don join our team is both an honor and a major part of this initiative.”

Founded in 2004 by economist Nouriel Roubini, RGE is an independent, global macroeconomic strategy research firm. The firm is headquartered in New York, with offices in London and Singapore.
