According to the announcement, Singh will join the Global Macro and Currency team and will be responsible for further growing the breadth of alpha sources within the Quantitative Strategies Group’s Global Tactical Asset Allocation platform, iGAP (integrated Global Alpha Platform).
The iGAP Global Tactical Asset Allocation Platform seeks to add uncorrelated excess return to portfolios by taking advantage of inefficiencies within and across country equity, country bond, yield curve, commodity and currency markets around the world.
Singh was most recently Director and Global Equity Strategist with Citigroup Investment Research. Prior to Citigroup, he spent several years as a Quantitative Analyst in Global Emerging Markets with Morgan Stanley and before that was a Senior Economist at The WEFA Group.
“We are adding research staff based on the strong success we have had in this strategy,” said Janet Campagna, Managing Director and Global Head of Quantitative Strategies at Deutsche Asset Management, in the announcement. “We are constantly looking to broaden our research efforts and deepen the alpha sources in our strategies and bringing Narendra on board is indicative of our continued focus on hiring the best minds in the industry.”
