Fraser Thompson

Economist

Fraser is an economist at Keystone. He joined the firm in 2016 and works out of the New York office. He received his MA in economics from NYU and his BA in economics and mathematics from the University of Alberta. He applied his passion for teaching in Shanghai, where he spent two years teaching economics to high school students, and as an adjunct instructor at NYU’s Stern Business School.

Fraser has a passion for understanding the ‘cause and effects’ of economics and has researched an array of topical subjects ranging from the NASA Shuttle program to ‘what drives U.S. IPO underpricing.’ As a child, this Fulbright Scholar aspired to become a garbage man. Nowadays, he plays in an economics band, the Benevolent Dictators, that sings about Adam Smith.
