Howard Richardson, Hugh Griffin, and Graham Meyers will join the staff at TCL Associates. They will research small and mid-cap mutual funds, commodities, and the forex markets.
TCL Associates announces the hiring of three Americans; Howard Richardson, Hugh Griffin, and Graham Meyers. The new hires will be based in Tokyo, but will focus on different sectors and indices in the United States. The new hires will be effective Monday September 16th.
Howard Richardson will focus on small and mid-cap mutual funds. He joins TCL Associates from Merrill Lynch, where he worked for eight years of buy side trading experience. Prior to that he was an analyst at JP Morgan. He obtained his undergraduate degree from New York University in finance, and then continued on to Dartmouth for his MBA.
Hugh Griffin will research on commodities, with a heavy focus on precious metals especially gold, silver, and platinum. He believes that because of supply issues in South Africa, platinum will be one of the best performing commodities next year. Hugh joins TCL Associates from Citi Group where he spent eleven years as a commodities analyst. He received his undergraduate degree from Duke University, and then stayed at Duke to obtain masters in economics.
Graham Meyers will research the Forex market, with a heavy emphasis on emerging market currencies. He joins TCL Associates from Wells Fargo, where he spent six years as a sell side currency trader. He attended the University of Pennsylvania to obtain his undergraduate in finance, before continuing on to The University of Ohio to receive an MBA.
Mr Robert Todd, Asian Market Analyst commented on the appointments, “I am pleased to welcome Howard, Hugh, and Graham to the team here at TCL Associates.
