Robin Griffiths is one of the world’s most experienced and highly regarded analysts. He is currently Chief Technical Strategist at ECU Group in London, where he has been a member of the Global Macro Team for over 20 years. Robin began his career in the financial markets with Phillips & Drew in 1966, having taken a degree in economics at Nottingham University. He went on to be a partner at WI Carr, the first British stock broker to have offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo. Part of this firm was acquired by Grieveson Grant, with whom Robin enjoyed a stay in Japan. In 1986 Robin joined James Capel, which was already owned by HSBC. He stayed there until normal retirement age, and during that period travelled all over the world to meet their extended client base. For the last six years of that employment Robin was a resident in New York.

Having left HSBC Investment Bank in 2002, Robin then joined Rathbones as head of Global Investment Strategy, where he stayed until 2008. Thereafter, he became the Technical Strategist for Cazenove Capital and managed the Worldwide Absolute Return hedge fund.

Robin has been a regular on CNN, CNBC, Reuters and Bloomberg TV. He is a committee member and former chairman of the International Federation of Technical Analysts; former chairman, now
fellow, of the British Society of Technical Analysts; and honorary member of the Swiss Association of Market Technicians (SAMT). Robin is also author of several notable financial market books, including Mapping the Markets and Future Storm, and a contributor to Technical Analysis & Behavioural Finance in Fund Management: Discussions with Investment Managers and Analysts and Breakthroughs in Technical Analysis: New Thinking from the World’s Top Minds.

A keen sailor, Robin has crossed the Atlantic eight times, setting a new British record in 1984 with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. Most recently, he completed a boyhood dream of sailing his own yacht around the world. His circumnavigation took just under two years and ended in Trinidad in late May 2013.
