International investing has expanded as the internationalization of professional asset management has increased and the relative weight of the U.S. in the world economy has shrunk. Clients require knowledge or estimates of inflection points of economic growth, exchange and interest rate expectations and the economic environment for future corporate earnings in major countries throughout the world. Information sources are both governmental and private, using personal contact and extensive country and subject files. Communication with clients is through written reports, telephone briefings and meetings. Internally, the economist is a member of the firm's Investment Policy Committee. As global investment grows, so also does the complexity and the fascination of the job.
