Louise PurtleLouise Purtle | Chief Strategist, CreditSights | CreditSights Wealth

In today’s financial markets there is a surplus of information, but a shortage of insight. Louise specializes in distilling the noise of 24-7 financial news headlines into meaningful investment guidance and actionable advice in the corporate bond market. Over a long career in a variety of roles Louise has worked on perfecting the balance between the big picture and the deep dive, surrounding credit stories from multiple angles but honing in on the actions that improve performance for clients.

Louise joined CreditSights in 2002, shortly after the firm was founded and has researched, written and spoken on the developments in the global credit markets during the tumultuous cycles and the explosion of corporate debt issuance that has taken place since.

Known for her ability to see connections in seemingly disparate market developments, her strong communication skills and her power as a corporate speaker, Louise is an invaluable member of one of the most respected analytical teams producing institutional research in today's markets. In 2016, building on CreditSights’ reputation as thought leaders in the markets, Louise turned her focus to the development of CreditSights Wealth, which offers preeminent corporate bond research designed specifically for wealth advisors.

Prior to her time at CreditSights Louise enjoyed working for Deutsche Bank for nine years in a range of roles and locations from an Indexed Bond Specialist in Australia to the Head of US Credit Strategy in New York. She began her career in Australia working for ten years at Macquarie Bank in areas such as foreign exchange, commodities trading and funds management.

Louise received an MBA from Columbia Business School in New York in 1999. She now divides her time between New York and Naples, FL where she lives on a farm with her son and a motley assortment of animals.
