Guy Stear, Global Head of Emerging Markets and Corporate Credit Strategy
Guy Stear is responsible for Corporate Credit Research and Emerging Market Strategy. In this role he works with two teams: one which covers emerging forex, rates and both local and hard currency bonds across Eastern Europe, Asia and Latam; and a second which makes investment recommendations on both investment grade and high yield bonds in developed and emerging markets from a top-down and bottom-up perspective. Both universes are driven by the need to generate higher returns than in developed markets by taking different risks. Guy has worked at Société Générale since 2002, and his previous roles include Head of Research, Asia (based in Hong Kong) and Head of Credit Research. Prior to joining Société Générale, Guy worked in the equity, government bond and forex markets in both research and sales. He has an MBA from Insead, a BSFS from Georgetown University, is a CFA charterholder and passed the Certificate in Quantitative Finance.
