Since the financial crisis, he has focused increasingly on global debt dynamics and on the distortions created by central banks. He has also written extensively on market liquidity. Prior to his appointment as Global Markets Strategist, Matt was Citi’s Global Head of Credit Strategy. Before joining Citi in 2003, he was Head of European Credit Strategy at JPMorgan.
