Charles DumasDirector & Chief Economist at TS Lombard
Charles Dumas joined TS Lombard in 1998, becoming Chief Economist in 2005. He is recognised as one of the world’s leading macroeconomic forecasters. He has written several books on the global economy, including ‘Globalisation Fractures’ (2010), which earned praise from Paul Volcker, former Fed chairman and adviser to President Obama: “In the midst of the struggle to deal with the international financial crisis, too little attention has been paid to the underlying imbalances … Charles Dumas spells it out in clear analysis and convincing detail.”
Charles has 40 years’ experience as an economist and financial markets professional. In the 1980s he was Head of Research for JP Morgan in London. In the 1970s he was Director of European Economics for General Motors.
Before that he worked on tax reform for the Conservative Party and as a journalist on The Economist newspaper. He was a Managing Director in JP Morgan's New York M&A department from 1988 to 1992 and had previously worked in its capital markets group in New York and London.
