Christopher Granville

Christopher was a co-founder of what became the Emerging Markets unit of the macro research firm TS Lombard, which in 2022 was acquired by GlobalData. His EM experience was forged in Russia, where, from the 1990s onwards, he was a British diplomat and then an analyst working in Moscow-based investment banks. His banking experience combined work both for financial investors – earning him top rankings in broker surveys – and strategic investors, including advisory work on the acquisition of Russian beer brands by international strategic investors. At TS Lombard, Christopher has integrated broad geopolitical risk analysis into the firm’s macroeconomic and market strategy research.


He is a regular commentator on political drivers for economies and financial markets in broadcast media and leading op-ed columns. He graduated from Oxford University, where he was also a Fellow of All Souls College.
