Thierry Malleret is the founder and managing partner of Monthly Barometer. Our eponymous flagship monthly newsletter is Thierry’s brainchild and the product of his innovative and exacting approach to research and analysis. Thierry possesses decades of unique professional experience spanning investment banking, as a Chief Economist and Strategist of a major Russian investment bank and as an Economist at the EBRD in London; think tanks and academia in New York and Oxford and government including a three-year spell in the Prime Minister’s office in Paris. At the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, Thierry founded and headed the Global Risk Network and for a number of years was responsible for the programme of the annual meeting at Davos. Until 2011 Thierry was senior partner at IJ (Informed Judgement) Partners, an investment boutique based in Geneva, and prior to that managing partner at Rainbow Insight, an advisory boutique providing tailor-made intelligence to investors which he founded and subsequently sold. In 2015 Thierry also founded the Summit of Minds. These high-level meetings combine hard thinking on major macro issues and the importance of personal wellbeing and the power of nature. Thierry thus achieved a serendipitous coming together of a life-long enthusiasm for the great outdoors and the creation of world class gatherings. Initially in Chamonix, the MB Summits of Minds now also take place in a variety of international locations. Thierry has many business and academic publications to his name and has published four novels. Thierry speaks all over the world with leading agencies. He also sits on a variety of advisory boards.
