Andrew Busch was the first Chief Market Intelligence Officer (CMIO) for the U.S. government at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). As CMIO, he was charged with improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of the markets. Andy provided briefings to White House, US House and US Senate staffers on a wide range of issues including: extreme market volatility, China’s influence on the global commodity markets and the impact of Fintech & virtual currencies on market dynamics.

Mr. Busch created and directed a new research group, Market Intelligence Branch (MIB), for the agency. As CMIO, his job was to provide objective research on the financial markets to the CFTC, SEC, US Treasury and Federal Reserve. Energy, agriculture, interest rates and technology (Bitcoin, blockchain, AI) were some of the areas of research covered by the team.

In his role as CMIO, he was CFTC Chairman’s liaison to the private sector and met with a wide range of market participants including proprietary trading groups, futures and swaps exchanges and Fintech startups/investors.

Mr. Busch led the formation and execution of new channels to attain market research and knowledge as well as distribute this information directly to educate the public and agency. Andy created the first podcast for the agency, “CFTC Talks”, to gain access to a wide range of market participants, top researchers and members from the US and UK governments. Guests included: Nobel economics prize winner Robert Shiller, Dallas Federal Reserve President Rob Kaplan and UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Nick Cook. The program was the most successful in the history of the U.S. government with over 80k downloads in over 90 countries.

Prior to joining the CFTC, Mr. Busch was CEO and founder of a boutique financial markets and policy research firm, Bering Productions, Inc (BPI). Before BPI, he was the Global Currency and Public Policy Strategist for Bank of Montreal (BMO) in Chicago.
