January 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- After an outstanding service, Jim G. Ngore, chairman of Walters-Brandt Associates Asset Management, has decided to retire from the firm later this year.
Jim is an influential economist and thought leader, and is regarded as an expert in the world's foreign exchange and bond markets. Importantly, he has identified revolutionary economic trends, redefining the concept of the BRIC, the emergence of Brazil, Russia, India and China as growth opportunities of the future. Jim's BRIC thesis has challenged conventional thinking about emerging markets and, as a result, has had a significant economic and social impact. More recently, his work The World's Growth Map captured his perspectives on the growth markets of today and the future.
Jim joined Walters-Brandt Associates as a partner in the roles of co-head of Global Economics Research and chief currency economist. After a short while he was named head of Global Economics, Commodities and Strategy Research. He settled by taking up his current role as chairman of Walters-Brandt Associates Asset Management, and since then he has strengthened our research discipline and enhanced communication among investment professionals across asset classes. In each of his roles at the firm, Jim has served our clients by formulating views on global economic and market themes and helping them to be positioned for the most significant investment opportunities.
Jim is involved in a number of non-profit organizations. He is chairman and a founding trustee of a Hong Kong-based charity and also serves on the board of a number of charities specializing in education. Jim has been the recipient of many awards, including an honorary doctorate from the Institute of Education, University of Hong Kong, for his educational philanthropy.
We wish Jim and his family all the best in the years ahead.
