Ian Shepherdson's Biography

Dr Ian Shepherdson is an acute markets analyst. Called "consistently right" by the New York Times, he is known for his foresight in predicting major global economic events.

Recent examples abound. In 2022, Shepherdson predicted that the surge in mortgage rates would lead to a significant decline in housing demand. 2 years prior, he forecast that the Federal Reserve would begin raising rates in 2022 due to inflationary pressures, contrary to most analysts' expectations of rates remaining low until 2024 or later. Perhaps most notably, he predicted the housing market crash of 2008 several years earlier.

This prescience has made Ian Shepherdson a highly sought after economist and commentator. As the Founder and Chairman of Pantheon Macroeconomics, he provides global economic intelligence to over 500 investment funds, banks, policymakers and international institutions. Renowned for its independence and lucidity, Pantheon is also a testament to Shepherdson's unwavering commitment to delivering unbiased and data-grounded analysis.

Shepherdson's skills have been recognised by the Wall Street Journal, who have twice named him the world's most accurate economic forecaster. His uncanny ability to read the markets makes his analysis influential in the decisions of policymakers and investors worldwide.

Before founding Pantheon, Ian Shepherdson served as the Chief US Economist for High Frequency Economics and as Chief Economist, USA, for HSBC Securities in New York. Over a distinguished career spanning more than a quarter-century, Shepherdson has been the guiding force behind critical decisions, earning a dedicated following amongst investors.

A member of the Economic Club of New York, Ian Shepherdson earned his PhD in Economics and BSc in Banking and Finance from Loughborough University, England. His ability to decode the intricacies of economic phenomena and distill them into actionable insights makes him a hugely popular speaker and advisor.
