Anders Rasmussen

Anders Fogh Rasmussen has been at the center of European and global politics for three decades as Secretary General of NATO, Prime Minister of Denmark, Danish Minister of Economic Affairs, and a leading Danish parliamentarian. During the Danish Presidency of the European Union from July to December 2002, he played a key role in concluding the accession negotiations with 10 candidates for EU-membership. He was NATO's Secretary General from 2009 to 2014. His tenure marked a fundamental transformation of the Alliance. Anders oversaw the Alliance's operational peak with six operations on three continents including Afghanistan, Kosovo and Libya, as well as counter-piracy along the Somali coast, a training mission in Iraq and a counter-terrorism operation in the Mediterranean. In October 2014, Anders founded the company Rasmussen Global advising clients on a wide range of issues such as international security, transatlantic relations, the European Union, and emerging markets.

Andrew Marr

Andrew Marr is host of The Andrew Marr Show on BBC1, the agenda-setting interview programme on Sunday mornings, with nearly two million viewers every week. He also hosts Start the Week on Radio 4. After an English degree at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, Andrew went straight into journalism. By 1988 he was Political Editor of The Economist, then he moved to The Independent where he became Editor in 1996. He was BBC's Political Editor from 2000-2005, making him one of the best-known faces on British television. Among his notable scoops at the BBC were the second resignation of Peter Mandelson and the 2004 interview in which Tony Blair told him that he would not seek a fourth term as Prime Minister. Since 2005, Andrew has presented several acclaimed documentary series including his History of Modern Britain (2007), Britain from Above (2008), The Making of Britain (2009), Mega Cities (2011), History of the World (2012) and most recently, My Brain and Me (2017).

Vincent Reinhart

Vincent is the Chief Economist for Standish. He is responsible for developing views on the global economy and making relative value recommendations among global bond markets, currencies, and sectors. Previously, he was Chief US Economist and managing director at Morgan Stanley. For the prior four years, he was a resident scholar at the AEI. Mr. Reinhart worked at the Federal Reserve for twenty-four years, most recently as Director of the Division of Monetary Affairs and Secretary and Economist of the Federal Open Market Committee. His responsibilities at the Federal Reserve included directing research and analysis of monetary policy strategies and the conduct of policy through open market operations, discount window lending, and reserve requirements. He was the principal liaison with the domestic desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and was responsible for preparing a document outlining policy alternatives for each FOMC meeting. His earlier experience in the Federal Reserve System included a two-year stint as Deputy Director in the Division of International Finance and Associate Economist of the FOMC and five years spent at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in a variety of capacities in both the Domestic and International Research Departments. His academic publications primarily concern the conduct of policy and issues related to the monetary transmission mechanism as well as an analysis of alternative auction techniques and Treasury debt management. After an undergraduate training at Fordham University, he received graduate degrees in economics at Columbia University.

Judith Bogner

Judith Bogner is a television presenter and commentator for international finance, business and geopolitics. For more than ten years she was one of the main European anchors of the financial news channel Bloomberg Global Television. Between May 2001 and October 2011, Judith anchored and reported for Bloomberg's top European based programs as well as for partner media outlets Bloomberg UTV India, Bloomberg HT Turkey, N24 and F.A.Z. Radio in Germany. She conducted countless interviews with market players in the international financial community as well as political and business leaders, such as Jean-Claude Juncker and Jose Manuel Barroso, Dieter Zetsche (Daimler), Peter Brabeck-Letmathe (Nestle) and Sir Martin Sorrell (WPP). The Global Financial Crisis that began in 2007 with increasing losses by investment funds from mortgage-backed securities took her career as financial news presenter to a whole new level: during 2008 and 2009 she hosted "Credit Quake: Europe on Edge", a series of special shows that covered all aspects of the Subprime Crisis, the collapse of Lehman and the subsequent fallout in financial markets. The program was shortlisted for the 2009 AIB Awards.
