Medley Global Advisors

Our History

Medley Global Advisors LLC (MGA) was founded in 1997 by Richard Medley, former chief political strategist to George Soros, to help investors navigate the opaque yet fascinating intersection of policy and markets.

From an initial concentration on G3 macro issues, MGA has over the years expanded its network and services to cover G20 countries, Emerging Markets, Geopolitics, Oil and Energy Markets.

Today, MGA has more than 45 experienced professionals with offices in New York, Washington DC, London, and Tokyo. Our client base and policy network spans the globe. MGA's professionals average more than 15 years of experience in the financial markets and the policy world.

Richard Medley left the firm in 2005 when private equity firms Boston Ventures and Castanea Partners purchased the company. In 2006, Goldman Sachs also took a minority share in the firm.

In February 2010, MGA was purchased by the Financial Times, one of the world's leading business news organisations.
