We are delighted to announce that Tatiana Orlova, Lead EM Economist at Oxford Economics, has maintained her No. 1 Bloomberg ranking for her forecasting of Russia's policy rate.
Bloomberg published an article, "Russian Key Rate to Hit Zenith With 100bp Hike", which highlighted the forecast by Orlova.
"Russia was at the 'vanguard' of tightening among emerging- market central banks, and 'is likely to be ‘first in, first out,' Orlova said".
"Investors will be watching to see if policy makers revise their 2021 CPI forecasts on Friday; Orlova said the estimate could be increased 'quite significantly' from Bank of Russia’s 4.7%-5.2% prediction in April".
Orlova has maintained this ranking for the past 18 months.
