Jonathan Basile, ROB Senior Advisor, AIG Investments
Jonathan Basile carries over 25 years of Street experience in global macroeconomic research and financial market strategy. A 2016 restructuring brought him from AIG Global Economics to AIG Investments' Global Macro desk where he monitors major developed and emerging economies and key asset classes, like rates, credit, currencies, commodities, equities and real estate. 
He has established himself as a trusted, strong thought leader and collaborator with an eye for innovative, out-of-the-box perspectives. His goal is always to bring a forward-looking view to every conversation. He steers a monthly Global Macro discussion that sets the table for the outlook on rates, growth, inflation and unemployment across the US, Euro Area, UK and Japan. As part of this discussion, Jonathan sets the goalposts in a Bear-Base-Bull exercise for AIG portfolio managers across public and private asset classes, and his ability to distill signals from noise allows him to determine which way the risks are leaning.
