The daily Economics Asia newsletter compiles news, data and in- depth analysis of macroeconomic trends from the Bloomberg Professional service, as well as commentary by Bloomberg Brief economists Michael McDonough and Tamara Henderson. McDonough and Henderson study global economic trends from Hong Kong and Singapore, respectively, while four dedicated economists located in Europe and the Americas add global perspective to each issue.

“In a few pages, Asia Economics collects Bloomberg’s library of information and analysis that financial institutions and businesses need to keep abreast of global economic trends,” said Ted Merz, Editor and Content Manager of Bloomberg Brief. “Bloomberg Brief uniquely combines essential news and analytics with industry-specific commentary from business leaders, economists, strategists, policy makers and researchers.”

Commenting about her new role, Henderson said, “There has never been a better time to look at how local economies are impacted by global trends, and how local economic and political changes influence investment decisions abroad. I look forward to examining the forces influencing the rapidly-changing global economy with fellow Bloomberg Brief economists and editors.”

Henderson has 25 years experience as an economist and has worked for the International Monetary Fund’s Investment Unit and Citigroup. She is also the author of Fixed Income Strategy: A Practitioner’s Guide to Riding the Curve (Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2003), which combines theoretical models and practical experience to offer a framework for fixed-income investing and trading. Prior to joining Bloomberg, Henderson served as the head of foreign exchange research for Asia at Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.

Asia Economics joins 13 other Bloomberg Brief newsletters, which together now claim more than 150,000 subscribers. Bloomberg Brief titles include: Economics, Economics Europe, Hedge Funds, Private Equity, Mergers, Bankruptcy & Restructuring, Leveraged Finance, Municipal Market, Structured Notes, Risk, Financial Regulations, Climate & Carbon and Islamic Finance.
