Dolfin, the technology-savvy investment firm, has boosted its research offering with the appointment of Olga Tschekassin as an Economist in its Investment Management team.
Based in London and reporting to CIO Vassilis Papaioannou, Tschekassin will focus on producing macroeconomic research to contribute to Dolfin’s unique blend of human macro analysis and software-powered quantitative analysis in order to generate high-conviction ideas and investment strategies.
Tschekassin joins from Barclays Investment Bank, where she focused on macroeconomic coverage of Germany and wider European thematic research. Prior to that, she worked as an Economist in the European Commission and has also completed stints at the Commerzbank AG and Brussels-based international economics think tank, Bruegel.
Bringing her extensive knowledge of the European macroeconomic environment and quantitative studies to the role, Tschekassin is the latest in a string of hires at the investment firm; Dolfin has grown its research team by 50 per cent in the past 12 months.
Vassilis Papaioannou said of Tschekassin’s appointment: “Dolfin’s approach to research is characterised by a winning blend of macro perspectives and quantitative analysis, underpinned by the right technology and infrastructure to maximise returns for clients. Olga’s skill set and experience will significantly bolster our research output and be of great benefit to our growing client base.”
