The Roundtable Insight: Tom Lam and Yra Harris on the Economy, Fed and BoJ Policy Trends, Investment Environment

Tom Lam has over two decades of experience in the realm of economics and finance, with expertise ranging from covering the global economy, deciphering financial markets, including macro forecasting, to advising on investment strategy. He commenced his career in New York, at the outset with a large money-center bank and then at a hedge fund. Thereafter, while in Singapore, he worked at two financial institutions and later joined academia. Tom has been consistently ranked among the top five most accurate economists in the world on forecasting the US economy overall (placed third, last published by the "Bloomberg Rankings of Top Forecasters"). During the Global Financial Crisis, he was also acknowledged as the second-best US forecaster worldwide. Moreover, he was exclusively identified by Bloomberg to have accurately predicted the onset of the 2009 US recovery 16 months ahead of the official announcement. Consequently, he has been widely publicized as one of "Wall Street’s Most Prophetic Economists".
