Geopolitical Risk Economist


London, UK

Application Deadline

With close to 50 economists and 200 economics and government reporters worldwide, Bloomberg has an outstanding capacity to explain where the global economy and geopolitics are now, where they might be heading, and the ways in which the forces interact.

Bloomberg Economics offers a comprehensive macroeconomic research service for Terminal subscribers. That includes detailed forecasts, supported by thorough and original thematic research. The economists also produce previews of major data releases and economic events as well as analysis of the numbers as they break. The goal is to offer Bloomberg clients a deeper insight into the themes that drive policy, financial markets and capital flows.

We're seeking an economist with experience modeling the macroeconomic impact of geopolitical shocks. This person could be based in London, Frankfurt, Madrid or Zurich.

The role:

The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and maintaining a suite of models to assess the effects of shifts in trade, capital flows, migration and other forces, combining estimates of short-term dynamics and long-term structural change.

  • You'll work closely with the geoeconomics and country research teams to provide modeling support for specific scenarios.
  • You'll support colleagues developing tools that Bloomberg clients can use to build their own macroeconomic scenarios.
  • You'll also help map insights from models to portfolio analysis.

We'll trust you to:

  • Develop and maintain state-of-the art modeling tools (such as CGE or quantitative trade models) to analyze the structural effects of geopolitical shocks on the economy.
  • Develop and maintain models (such as DSGE) to assess short- to medium-term impacts of shocks.
  • Produce insightful model-based research on critical issues for the global economy, working collaboratively with colleagues in our modeling, geoeconomic and country analysis teams.
  • Support the development of quantitative tools that Bloomberg clients can use to run their own scenarios and bring model outputs into their workflows.
  • Collaborate on projects with the broader Bloomberg Economics group - contributing quotes to news stories and from time to time working on projects with economics reporters.
  • Appear at conferences, on television, and in print media - and meet directly with Bloomberg clients.

You'll need to have:

  • 5+ years of relevant experience in economic modeling, with proven expertise in global models such as CGE models and/or quantitative trade models. Hands-on experience with DSGE modeling is a plus.
  • Strong analytical programming skills, preferably in GAMS or GEMPACK, Matlab, R or Python.
  • Robust knowledge of relevant data sources (relating to trade flows, tariffs and non-tariff barriers, migration and capital flows) as well as relevant fields of research
  • English fluency - other languages a plus
  • A graduate degree in economics - a PhD is a plus.
  • Energy and the initiative to provide a consistent flow of high-quality analysis.
  • Ability to generate content across a variety of formats, ranging from rapid turnaround responses to economic events to longer-term collaborative research into major global economic trends.

We'd love to see:

  • Demonstrable interest in international relations or geopolitics
  • Established track record working at an international institution, central bank or think tank
