Pasquale is an Executive Director who is Head of CEEMEA (Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa) Economic Research at Morgan Stanley.

Based in London, he coordinates the CEEMEA Compass, the team’s flagship publication. His areas of research are the business cycle and the implications for monetary policy, but he has written extensively also on issues such as external debt, fiscal policy, balance of payments dynamics, economic convergence, and has presented his views at several conferences in London as well as Continental Europe. Pasquale has a strong local network which he has built over many years and he regularly leads client trips to the region, to meet with central banks, ministries of finance and local experts.

Pasquale joined Morgan Stanley in November 2006. Previously, he worked for 6 years at JP Morgan, where he covered the economies of Italy, Spain and Scandinavia for several years before joining the CEEMEA Economics Team to focus on Emerging Europe and Israel. He holds a BSc and an MSc in Economics from the London School of Economics.
