Brunello Rosa is CEO and Head of Research at R&R. He is a research fellow of the Department of International Politics and the City Political Economy Research Centre at City, University of London and a research associate at the Systemic Risk Centre of the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he is also a practitioner lecturer in finance for MSc students and in macroeconomics for executive-education professionals. Brunello is an active member of Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs), the UK’s Institute of Directors, the International Institute of Strategic Studies and the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET). He contributes to the Research Hub in Finance of the UK's National Institute of Economic and Social Research, for the ESRC programme on Rebuilding Macroeconomics. 


Before co-founding this new venture, Brunello served as co-Head of Research and Managing Director for Developed Markets, G10 Rates and Currencies at Roubini Global Economics. Brunello joined RGE from the Bank of England, where he had mainly worked in Markets, in the division that implements monetary policy and provides liquidity insurance. He also briefly served in the Bank’s Financial Stability area and its Centre for Central Banking Studies. Previously, he worked as a macroeconomist and fixed income strategist with a focus on Europe at IDEAglobal, a market intelligence company. In these various capacities, Brunello appeared on Bloomberg, Reuters, CNBC and other TV programmes, and had been quoted by a variety of media outlets. Prior to joining the private sector, he was a research assistant at the Financial Markets Group of the London School of Economics, where he also taught classes in finance. Brunello started his career as a data analyst at the Department of Economics and as a research fellow at Siena University’s Centre for Complex System Studies, where he studied and researched the financial fragility of economic systems. 


In 2014, Brunello was awarded a prize by the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the UK for his "outstanding contributions" to the development of business ties between the UK and Italy.  These include his articles and events with Raffaele Cantone, president of Italy's Anti-Corruption Authority. He is now Director of the Association "Talented Italians in the UK," which gathers the winners of the  prize "Young Talented Italians."  Brunello holds a master’s degree in finance and economics from the London School of Economics and a laurea cum laude in economics from the University of Siena in Italy.
