S Company: The Industry Spread Contact: Brendan Gunn Website: https://theindustryspread.com As a result, the information they provide will keep users informed and ready for any client meeting, lunch or “coffee” with a colleague or fellow industry professional. It is not designed to give out minute- by-minute updates, but rather a comprehensive overview of the markets. This expert team is led by Michael Moran, an experienced global markets professional who currently writes a daily markets commentary. Moran has traded currencies for over 30 years, having worked in dealing rooms of many major banks from all over the globe. He lives in Sydney with his wife, 5 children, 2 grandsons and another one coming. He still loves trading and talking about the currency markets. All of them! He began his career as an assistant dealer in money markets and foreign exchange with Lloyds Bank. He has worked in Hongkong, Manila, Tokyo, Singapore and Sydney. He’s traded through the 1985 Plaza Accord, Paul Keating’s 1986 “banana republic” statement, the Asian Currency Crisis in 1997, and the 9/11 New York Twin Tower terrorist strike. Later he took the task of speaking to sales team of the banks he worked at (Lloyds, NAB, CBA) during the daily morning meetings. Other traders hated this job, but Moran developed a liking for commentating and putting forward his views on currencies, in the process helping others, which he still does today. Moran wrote briefly for Invast Global before taking the position as a Senior Analyst for Royal Financial Trading. He currently is a Responsible Manager in Compliance for Transferwise Ltd, Pty, a global money transfer firm where he advises the Treasury team. Having spent the last 10 years of his trading career managing the Emerging Markets and Asian currency desks of NAB and CBA, he formulates much of his market analysis from their movements. “Each commentator has experience working for some of the top financial institutions in the world, managing trading desks as well as, in some cases, being responsible for Managing Funds across the Equities, FX, Futures, interest rates and Bonds spaces.”
