Lombard Street Research
Freya Beamish joined Lombard Street Research Asia in Autumn 2011.
She is based in our Hong Kong office and covers Asia, with a focus on the North East and Australia.
Recent work
Freya concentrates on the macroeconomic analysis of Japan, China, Korea and Australia.
This combination offers her a unique insight into these North East Asia competitors.
In June 2014 she published an LSR View: Japan’s ninja arrow, a comprehensive review of Japan’s problems and the way out through JGB default.
In 2013/14 she re-developed our leading indicators, changing the focus of the program and creating new indicators for all of the major countries in our coverage.
In early May 2013 she published a report, identifying the bubble in Asian bonds. This report was shortly followed by an in depth study of capital flows in Asia, Asia’s currency cold wars.
In March 2013, she co-authored a report, China’s slowdown – winners and (mostly) losers. Freya contributes to our
Global leading indicators and Asset Allocation publications and produces frequent research notes on her areas of specialization.
