Investment Firm Pretium Hires Macro Research Head

Investment firm Pretium, with $14 billion of managed assets spanning real estate, residential and corporate credit, has hired Charlie Himmelberg as a senior managing director and head of macro research. Himmelberg will be responsible for global market research across the Midtown Manhattan-based firm’s strategies.

“Charlie is a highly-respected macro strategist,” said Donald Mullen, Pretium’s CEO and founder. “His thought leadership, vast experience navigating through times of market turbulence, and research expertise will be invaluable as we assess opportunities in the current economic environment.”

Prior to joining Pretium, Himmelberg served as partner, managing director and head of global markets research in the global investment research division at Goldman. He held various roles at Goldman Sachs since 2005.

Previously, Himmelberg worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Over the course of a 25-year career, he has also held positions at Columbia University, New York University and the University of Chicago.
