What Macro Means to RIF
RIF's Department of Macroeconomic Research sets the fund's investment framework at the beginning of each semester, which analysts then use to inform their pitch thesis. The fund primarily focuses on the next twelve months of the American economy, but Senior Analysts also produce outlooks on countries across the globe. Each of RIF's economic outlooks for 2021 can be found below. Analysts are encouraged to write their own outlook on the US as a prerequisite for promotion to Senior Analyst.
Additionally, a select group of Senior Analysts periodically write articles arguing a particular point on an economic or financial topic of their choice. These articles reflect the opinion of the analyst and bear no impact on the investment strategy of the fund.
RIF is currently looking for industry professionals to advise the Macro Team.
