Brad Setser Joins the President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris Transition Team

Senior Advisor Brad Setser has joined a Biden-Harris agency review team. Setser is a member of the Office of the United States Trade Representative team. This team will also review the US International Trade Commission and the US Trade and Development Agency. As such, Brad will be on leave from his role as Senior Advisor to Exante Data.

 According to the Biden-Harris Transition website:

“Agency review teams are responsible for understanding the operations of each agency, ensuring a smooth transfer of power, and preparing for President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris and their cabinet to hit the ground running on Day One. These teams are composed of highly experienced and talented professionals with deep backgrounds in crucial policy areas across the federal government.”  You can learn more about the agency review teams here.

 Setser joined Exante Data in mid-2019 as a Senior Advisor – announcement here.  During his time with us, he remained on fellowship with the Council on Foreign Relations.  Setser has been analyzing global capital movements for more than 20 years, and we regard him as one of the world’s top experts on this topic. At Exante Data, we have sought to embed Setser’s analytical approach into our Global Flow Analytics platform – this tool will remain a core part of our client offering into 2021.

 “We wish Brad the best in this important policy role, and while we do not know what the future holds, we would like to thank Brad for his contributions to Exante’s research process to date,” said Founder and CEO Jens Nordvig.  “We have learnt a lot from Brad’s deep knowledge of balance of payment trends in many important economies, and we are grateful for his contributions to Exante Data in 2019 and 2020.”
