Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, B.A (double), J.D Global Managing Director & Chief Frontier Markets Analyst
Adjudged globally to be one of the leading Africa frontier markets analysts, and voted among the Top 30 under 30 Analysts by New York Institutional Investor Magazine in 2006, Sebastian helped establish the multimillion dollar Africa risk research practice at leading global political risk consultancy firm, Eurasia Group. 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.

Previously, Sebastian was head of the energy unit at Thompson Financial Capital Markets Surveillance Group in New York. He has advised UK Prime Minister Tony Blairs Commission on Africa and on the presidential campaigns of several major candidates in Africa.
