Deutsche Bank Securities
Peter Hooper oversees a team of economists that analyzes and forecasts developments in the U.S. economy and financial markets.
Hooper joined Deutsche Bank Securities in the fall of 1999, first as chief international economist; he shortly thereafter assumed responsibilities as chief U.S. economist. Hooper frequently comments on U.S. economic and financial developments in the news media, and he and his team have, in recent years, ranked highly in the Wall Street Journal’s poll of economic forecasters.
Prior to joining the firm, Hooper enjoyed a distinguished 26-year career at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C. He held numerous positions at the Fed, including as an economist on the FOMC and as deputy director of the division of international finance. In doing so, he developed an informed view of the Fed’s policy-making process.
Hooper earned a BA in economics from Princeton University. He has published numerous books, journal articles, and reviews on economics and policy analysis.
