RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness Team Adds Beverage Analyst

St. Louis, Mo. (May 30, 2017) – Rabobank announces the expansion of its RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness team with the addition of Jim Watson, senior beverage analyst.

Based in New York City, Jim Watson holds an economics degree from Duke University and has ten years of industry experience. His primary focus is the coffee, soft drink and craft beer segments of the beverage industry.

“Rabobank’s cooperative structure and deep agricultural focus allow me to look at the industry holistically, from the supply chain up through consumer demand, and to focus on the effects of key industry trends and growth drivers over a longer time-horizon” says Watson.

Prior to joining the RaboResearch team, Watson spent ten years working in equity research for HSBC. While there, he covered the beverage industry globally, but his main focus was soft drinks and beer within the Americas.

“Jim is a great addition to our team, further strengthening our deep knowledge of the beverage sector,” Pablo Sherwell, Head of RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness North America. “The ability to provide exclusive research and industry insights to clients through a wide network of analysts is what makes Rabobank unique and offers our clients value that cannot be replicated.”
