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.

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.
