Sebastian was between 2005 and 2010 the sovereign risk analyst on Sub-Saharan Africas two largest economies, Nigeria and South Africa for a global Stability Index developed by Eurasia Group with Lehman Brothers and later with Citigroup and Deutsche Bank. Sebastian has been quoted extensively by the international media and is renowned for his accurate, and sometimes controversial ahead of-the-market calls on major political, electoral, legislative and socio-economic events throughout Africa and other geopolitical events.

He has advised UK Prime Minister Tony Blairs Commission on Africa and on the presidential campaigns of several major candidates in Africa.

Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, BA/BA, JD - Global Managing Director & Chief Analyst, Frontier Markets Adjudged as one of the world's leading frontier markets risk analysts, and voted among the 'Top 30 under 30 Analysts' by the New York's Institutional Investor Magazine in 2006, Sebastian helped establish the multimillion dollar Africa risk advisory, consulting, and research practice at leading global risk consultancy firm, Eurasia Group in 2005. Sebastian Spio-Garbrah has been called by some frontier markets investors the "Meredith Whitney"of the 2008-2009 Nigerian banking crisis where his prescient risk analysis exactly forecasted the scope of the country's toxic bank assets and pending bank insolvencies - even at a time when the country's central bank governor gave the country's banks a clean bill of health. Sebastian was between 2005 and 2010 the sovereign risk analyst on Nigeria and South Africa for a global Stability Index developed by Eurasia Group and Lehman Brothers, Deutsche Bank, and CitiBank.

In early December 2010, before the start of the Arab Spring, Sebastian accurately forecasted the fall of the Egyptian Mubarak ragime. He has also made some bold, and very often correct calls on several closely competitive elections in Africa - Ghana 2008, Zambia 2011. Sebastian's keen insights, analyses and counsel is widely sought by global multinationals, governments and many financial intermediaries. DaMina's client list boasts several Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller firms with a global presence.
