Russell Jones
Partner at LlewellynConsulting


Russell Jones is a former Chief Economist and Head of FX Research senior executive. He has worked at several leading investment banks, including UBS and Lehman Brothers, as well as at ADIA and Westpac. He frequently appears on major news channels including BBC, CNBC, CNN and NHK and is regularly quoted in newspapers, including The Financial Times and The Economist. A much sought-after macroeconomist with an international purview, Russell is a compelling speaker. He presents regularly to a wide range of audiences, from financialmarket experts and corporates, to policymakers and the media.

Currently a partner at independent Llewellyn Consulting in the City of London, Russell advises hedge funds and other high-profile asset managers, domestic and multinational corporates, law-firms, and governments. 

 Russell’s deep understanding of financial market dynamics, economic policy, history, and many individual economies puts him in a class of his own, enabling him to offer authoritative insights into both the shorterterm conjuncture and longer-term trends. 

 An author of several books on economics, and an expert on the 1930s Great Depression, he is a former Managing Director and research department leader at a number of internationally-renowned financial institutions. Working on both the ‘buy’ and ‘sell-sides’ of the financial industry at different times in his career, he has been based in London, Tokyo, Sydney, and the Middle East, and has presented his views to the investment community in all four corners of the globe.
