Lesiba Mothata joined Investment Solutions in 2013 as Head of Market and Economic Research after a two year stint at the South African Reserve Bank as a risk specialist responsible for the strategic asset allocation of the foreign-exchange reserve portfolio worth about $50 billion.

Mothata spent most of his five years at Investec Bank in the private wealth business as a global macro economist, providing input into G7 and emerging-market economic trends, global currencies, sovereign bonds and commodities.

He was an integral member of the tactical and strategic asset allocation committee, where he modelled risk premium assumptions.

Before joining Investec Bank, Mothata was at the Nedbank Treasury for about two and a half years as a currency trader and resident economist for the global spot-trading desk.

Mothata holds a BCom (Economics and Finance), BCom Hons (Economics) and MCom(Financial Economics).
