Research
Rabobank's Global Financial Markets team is also a competence center for research into financial markets, staffed by a team of global analysts and strategists covering macroeconomics, FX, fixed income, credit and agricultural commodities for large customers. This team also publishes periodic research reports detailing activities, trends, and research on commodities.
This area provides our key internal and external clients with meaningful information and analysis to help them with their risk management and investment decisions. Our analysts and strategists are based on our treasury trading rooms, where they engage in an ongoing dialogue with the client desk and negotiations. Although there is a group of products, such as daily, weekly and monthly research reports, the emphasis of the work done by this area is on adding value through meetings and special events, guided tours, and presentations that help our clients.
In Brazil, we have a chief economist, who is responsible for the bank's economic research in the country.
