Andrew Busch Speaker Biography

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. 

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.

Andy’s unconventional path to finance, politics and the economy has taught him that the big picture is filled in by small details and requires unconventional thinking to see them. He was number six out of seven kids that taught him to scrap, shout and fight for the last piece of food at dinner. He brought this determination to his career and to his insights into the world. Before he went into finance, he painted street curbs, he mowed lawns, he worked construction, and he ran his own painting company.

For all his career, he's been on the front lines of the economy and the markets.  Andy traded currencies and wrote research on the markets during the 1985 Plaza Accord; the 1998 Russian default; and to the 2008 global financial crisis. He’s advised major mutual funds, hedge funds, US Treasury Secretaries and the White House. In 2017, he became the nation’s first Chief Market Intelligence Officer at the CFTC. He provided economic and market briefings to the SEC, the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve of New York and the White House.  He is an outside economic advisor to the White House during this time of economic uncertainty and challenges caused by the coronavirus.

After a career of 35 plus years, he brings his perspective, insights and energy for fighting for the last piece of dinner to as many people and organizations as possible. Andy breaks down the economy, politics and technology to simplify the complexity and ensure that everyone can understand how they impact business and jobs. As a member of a large family and a husband/father of his own large family, Andy knows the importance of seeing through difficult, chaotic times towards the opportunities the future holds.

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. Just when we were getting over the worst of COVID, Russia invades. The war in the Ukraine is great example of the speed of change and the disruptiion that can happen to the global economy. As well, AI, robots, Zoom, and bitcoin are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help business overcome, adapt and thrive. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? Andy literally wrote the book on large, catastrophic events and how they impact our markets, economy and world.

The coming year will be transformational as trends super-charged by the pandemic fully exert themselves on the economy. AI, robots, Zoom and bitcoin are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help business overcome, adapt and thrive. As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes and societal shifts (war) drive opportunities for clients. He provides context by doing a “where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going” for the economy. He takes the trends super charged by COVID & war, then applies them to your industry via a case study to show where money is flowing.

Are you thinking about how to adapt to the disruptions 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 explore the economic future by getting you the tools you need to be successful.”

US Midterm Elections: outlook and growth opportunities!

A deep dive into the potential changes coming from a shift in control of Congress. Legislation, regulation, SCOTUS nominee, Federal Reserve, trade and economic policy all covered for the changes. Plus, how will this change the 2024 US presidential election outlook. Our job is to provide you with a view of the future and the growth opportunities stemming from rapid economic change in politics, climate and technology.


ESG and Climate Change: Growth Opportunities

Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG is considered one of the hottest topics today for clients, investors and businesses. Andy explains why a Biden victory and the new EU budget has supercharged interest in ESG. He’ll provide context for any audience to understand where we’ve been, where we are and where we are going on ESG and climate change.
