ETM Analytics Market Strategist Becker Joins African Alliance

Chris Becker, a former market strategist on Africa at Johannesburg-based ETM Analytics, has been hired by African Alliance Securities.

In his new job, Becker will be lead macroeconomic and equity strategist, he said in an e-mailed response to questions today. The move is effective tomorrow and Becker will be based in Johannesburg, he said.

Joining African Alliance gives Becker the opportunity to “tap into and leverage” the company’s investment banking businesses across Africa, which can “feed into macroeconomic and equity strategy research,” he said. African Alliance Group, with interests from stockbroking to private equity, has offices in 11 countries on the continent, according to its website.
