Head of African Markets @ ETM Analytics

Kieran Siney completed an undergraduate in economics and econometrics as well as an honours in economics at the University of Johannesburg, where he found a keen interest in monetary policy and financial market modelling. Kieran began his career under the guidance of Dr Frans Cronje and Ian Cruickshank at the Institute of Race Relations (IRR). His passion for financial markets led him to ETM Analytics, where he took up the role of a financial market analyst with a special focus on South African, Eastern European and South American markets. In a move to broaden his horizon, Kieran made a move to the African desk to bolster the Africa product offering through the development of new products and quantitative models, which aligned with his interest in the continent. Kieran has developed several frameworks which have become foundations in the African team’s analysis. This led to Kieran taking over the role of Head of African markets at ETM. Kieran is a regular commentator on Southern Africa markets in the media.
