Andrew Busch was the first Chief Market Intelligence Officer (CMIO) for the U.S. government at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). As CMIO, he was charged with helping them prepare for the future by improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of top trends, the markets, and the economy. Andy provided briefings to White House, US House, and US Senate staffers on a wide range of issues including the economy, stock market direction, interest rates, and China's influence on the global commodity markets.

Mr. Busch created and directed a new research group, Market Intelligence Branch (MIB), for the agency. As CMIO, his job was to provide objective research on the financial markets to the CFTC, SEC, US Treasury, and Federal Reserve. Energy, agriculture, interest rates, and technology (Bitcoin, blockchain, AI) were some of the areas of research covered by the team. Each week, he led the agency on a market and economic roundtable discussion with the staffs of the White House, the US Treasury, the SEC, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and the Federal Reserve Board.

Prior to joining the CFTC, Mr. Busch was CEO and founder of a boutique financial markets and policy research firm, Bering Productions, Inc (BPI). Before BPI, he was the Global Currency and Public Policy Strategist for the Bank of Montreal (BMO) in Chicago. He is the author of the book “World Event Trading” covering large crises like infectious disease outbreaks and their impact on the markets.

The Future Economy: opportunities for growth

The world is going to see more economic change in the next 5 years than we have seen in the last 100 years. 2021 will be transformational as trends super-charged by the pandemic fully exert themselves on the economy. AI, robots, Zoom, ESG, and bitcoin are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help businesses overcome, adapt, and thrive. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes, and societal shifts drive opportunities for clients. Are you thinking about how to run your business better or how you can grow it faster? How are you challenging yourself with new ideas, new concepts, new innovation? Can you understand the economic forces driving change to lead you in transforming your business and adapting your strategy to take control of the future? Andy says, “Let’s solve these problems together by getting you the tools you need to be successful.”

Andy recently did a virtual for Iowa Bankers and here's what they said:

It was just what we were looking for – an engaging, interesting, and informative presentation to engage our virtual audience. Andrew keeps the presentation moving, uses effective visuals, and provides thoughtful analysis throughout. He’s an outstanding presenter in a virtual environment, and I know he would be more amazing in person. I highly recommend Andrew for your next event!

Election Outcome and Beyond: Impact on the Economy, Business and Jobs

The outcome of the 2020 election will have the largest swing in economic policy in our lifetimes. With a unified Democratic Congress, the Biden administration will bring large changes impacting the entire economy. Fiscal stimulus, tax & trade policy, and clean energy/environment will all see big changes. Banks, insurers, and tech will likely see regulatory shifts that may disrupt their business models. Also, how do vaccine hesitancy and virus mutation change the focus for policy? Andrew Busch tackles all of this and answers the key questions: what does it mean for your industry and how you can prepare for it? In this keynote, Andy objectively breaks down the policies impacting the economy, business, and jobs. He'll give you the winners and losers in each sector of the economy. Trade, tax, energy, and the environment will all be impacted and discussed. Andy takes your audience out of the current COVID chaos to provide confidence in the future.

Pacific Life said this:
We hired Andrew to appear in-person for our fall Pacific Life Educational Symposium to provide insight into the economy, US election, and technology, and their impact on business and jobs. He delivered a high energy and engaging session to our large virtual audience. Our clients were actively engaged, and we ran out of time for all the questions they wanted to ask. His message of "prepare now for the opportunities ahead” was the message of optimism we needed for our attendees.

ESG: the future of energy is now

Environmental, Social, and Governance or ESG are considered one of the hottest investment themes today for clients and investment professionals. Andy explains why a Biden victory and the new EU budget will supercharge interest in ESG. This is already happening as a record amount of money has flowed into sustainable focused ETFs and open-end mutual funds in both in 2019. Most striking, money flowed into ESG equity products in 2020 when almost all other equity funds saw money leave. But what actually is it and how do you define how to invest in companies that say they are doing it? How will this impact lending and borrowing for energy firms? As a former regulator and CMIO of the CFTC, Andy Busch explains how ESG came about, what the risks are, and how ESG is trickier for investing than it looks. How does it fit into a bigger picture of the economy and how will it drive trends? After working for the agency that approved bitcoin, Andy brings a unique perspective to explain why the SEC is not likely to approve ESG and regulate it. And why this will matter to all investment professionals and investors.

Ag Economy: a big shift

Drawing from his experience as the US government's first Chief Market Intelligence Officer (CMIO), Andrew Busch deciphers the current U.S., global and political-economic landscape, explaining the key challenges facing the agriculture world today. He answers the question, "Where Do We Go from Here?"

For audiences, he answers the critical questions: why are the Ag markets volatile, how will this impact agriculture, and when will it end? As CMIO, he created objective research on the financial markets for the CFTC, SEC, US Treasury, and Federal Reserve. As an authority on the markets, he provides policy insights for what works, what doesn't, and what to expect in the future.

Key takeaways:
• How will the Biden administration change the policies currently in place at USDA, USTR, and Treasury?
• How will a vaccine change the outlook for global exports?
• How will supercharged trends like WFH, digitization and AI impact farming via ethanol and the environment?
