New analyst joins Rabobank research team

Media Release Date: 


Rabobank has announced the appointment of Paul Joules to its team of Australian and New Zealand research analysts.

Mr Joules – who has relocated from Rabobank’s London-based global Agri Commodity Markets Research division – will be responsible for delivering insights and knowledge on the cotton sector, as well as covering farm inputs (including farm land values, fertiliser and plant protection products) within the bank’s RaboResearch team, based in Sydney.

Announcing the appointment, RaboResearch general manager Stefan Vogel said Mr Joules had strong knowledge and experience across a broad range of global grain, oilseed and soft commodity markets.

“Paul’s strong knowledge and understanding of global agri commodity markets will be a great asset in providing meaningful insights and high-quality research for the bank’s food and agri clients in Australia and New Zealand,” Mr Vogel said. “Oceania’s heavily export-oriented agricultural sector will benefit from Paul’s global perspective as well as his crop and dairy farming background.”

In Australia and New Zealand, RaboResearch comprises a team of 11 specialist agri commodity and economic analysts, who are part of a network of well over 100 research analysts worldwide, focussed on providing comprehensive, leading-edge food and agribusiness and economic research for the bank’s clients.

Prior to joining Rabobank in 2021, Mr Joules worked as a commodity analyst for an independent consultancy which focused on assisting UK-based farmers market their grains and oilseeds.

Mr Joules grew up and worked on a mixed dairy and arable farm in West Wales, which his family continues to run. He holds a degree in Business Management from the University of the West of England.

He commences in the new role on July 17.
