Morgan Stanley has hired Tevfik Aksoy as its executive director and chief economist for Turkey and the Middle East and North Africa. He will report to Joachim Fels, co-head of global economics at Morgan Stanley.
Mr Aksoy joins Morgan Stanley from Deutsche Bank where he worked since 2004, most recently holding a similar position as chief economist for Turkey. In this role he also covered a number of east European and African countries.
Mr Fels said: Tevfik’s in-depth knowledge of Turkey and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will be invaluable to our clients and will further enhance our macro coverage of this increasingly important region.
