Jacob Blackburn

Research Analyst

Jacob comes to us from a small agricultural town on New Zealand’s South Island.

He has always had an entrepreneurial mindset, and first got interested in the financial markets when Twitter made the announcement of being publicly listed. Thus began an obsession with trading and learning about markets.

Upon completing his studies, Jacob received an internship at a Singapore based commodity trading and research firm.

After six months of interning, he moved on to a full time position as a research analyst for Global Macro Capital where he takes an active role in producing the daily briefing, manages risk and positions as well as trade idea generation and portfolio balancing.

Jacob’s other interests include Martial Arts, Travelling and Photography.
