Connecting Global Markets and Policy

SGH provides well-informed, timely research on the major central bank, fiscal and political (macro-policy) events that drive global bond, equity and foreign exchange markets.

We combine deep expertise in monetary and economic policy, politics, and trading, with primary sourced information to deliver our cutting edge, market relevant reports and briefings. Our analysis and insight is further enhanced through an on-going dialogue with some of the world’s most influential hedge funds, asset managers, and financial policymakers.

We focus strictly on macro-policy and politics and do not cover companies, sectoral, restricted, or regulatory issues, nor do we lobby, sell access, advertise, or execute trades: we stand proudly and solely accountable to the quality and value of our information and insight.

SGH Macro Advisors, LLC was founded in 2009 in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis by Sassan Ghahramani. The firm’s headquarters are in Greenwich, CT, with affiliates in Washington DC, Brussels, London, and Tokyo.
