Global Economy, Finance, Public Policy and Financial Industry Expert; Author and First Chief Market Intelligence Officer for US Government

Andrew Busch was the first Chief Market Intelligence Officer (CMIO) for the U.S. government at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). As CMIO, he was charged with improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of the markets. Andy provided briefings to White House, US House and US Senate staffers on a wide range of issues including the economy, stock market direction, interest rates and China's influence on the global commodity markets.

Market Research

Mr. Busch created and directed a new research group, Market Intelligence Branch (MIB), for the agency. As CMIO, his job was to provide objective research on the financial markets to the CFTC, SEC, US Treasury and Federal Reserve. Energy, agriculture, interest rates and technology (Bitcoin, blockchain, AI) were some of the areas of research covered by the team. Each week, he led the agency on a market and economic roundtable discussion with the staffs of the White House, the US Treasury, the SEC, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Federal Reserve Board.

Prior to joining the CFTC, Mr. Busch was CEO and founder of a boutique financial markets and policy research firm, Bering Productions, Inc (BPI). Before BPI, he was the Global Currency and Public Policy Strategist for Bank of Montreal (BMO) in Chicago. He is author of the book World Event Trading, covering large crises like infectious disease outbreaks and their impact on the markets.

2020 US Presidential Election: Impact on Economy, Business, and Jobs

The 2020 US Presidential election is between two very different candidates: President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. The outcome of this election could have one of the biggest policy swings in US history. In this keynote, Andy breaks down the candidates policies impacting the economy, business and jobs. He’ll tell you which plans help or hurt the economy the most. He’ll give you the winners and losers in each sector of the economy. Ag, trade, health care and energy will all be impacted and discussed. Most importantly, he’ll tell you how the COVID economic shutdown will tip the election. Andy objectively takes your audience out of the current COVID chaos to provide confidence in the future. He connects the dots to show how this election will impact their business, their jobs and their lives.

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance): A Massive Opportunity!

Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG is considered one of the hottest investment themes today for clients and investment professionals. Andy explains how a Biden victory and the new EU budget will supercharge interest in ESG. It's already starting as record amount of money has flowed into sustainable focused ETFs and open-end mutual funds in 2019. What's stunning is money flowed into ESG in a record amount during the COVID-19 outbreak and shutdown of the global economy! In this keynote, Andy covers what ESG is, why the demand has risen, examples of ESG fund strategies and why there is a tremendous opportunity via the 2020 US election and the new EU stimulus program. As a former regulator and CMIO of the CFTC, Andy Busch explains how ESG came about, what the risks are and how ESG is trickier for investing than it looks. And as an added bonus, he tells you how does it fits into a bigger picture of the economy and how it will impact your industry. After working for the agency that approved bitcoin, Andy brings a unique perspective to explaining why the SEC is not likely to approve ESG and regulate it. And why that will matter to all investment professionals and investors.
