Agribusiness banking specialist Rabobank announces the appointment of Angus Gidley-Baird as a senior animal proteins analyst to cover the sheep and beef sectors. Mr Gidley-Baird will be joining the bank’s Australia & New Zealand Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory division.

General Manager of Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory Luke Chandler said Angus’ appointment brought to the team a great depth of agricultural knowledge, as well as mainstream political and economic policy awareness. Having spent his entire career in Australian agribusiness, he said Angus has gained a very strong foundation in the issues impacting farmers and industry stakeholders all the way through the supply chain.

Mr Chandler added that the animal proteins sector is an industry with a very exciting future given the increasing emerging market demand and the uplift of exports to key regions. Angus will be working with Rabobank’s global team of analysts to bring this worldwide expertise to the bank’s local Australian and New Zealand clients.

Comprised of a network of some 80 analysts spread across every major production and consumption region of the world, Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory (FAR) team is charged with analysing developments in the food and agricultural markets and industries, and advising the bank and its clients on strategic implications for their businesses.

Mr Gidley-Baird has previously held roles at NSW Farmers Association, including policy director for Economics and Livestock, giving him wide exposure to Australian farming operations and issues impacting rural industries. He holds an honours degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Sydney, with majors in Agricultural Economics and Marketing, as well as a Masters in Accounting from Curtin University in Western Australia.

Joining the bank with a strong rural network, Mr Gidley-Baird said he is looking forward to the opportunities to get ‘out and about’ meeting with clients and others in the Rabobank Australia and New Zealand business.
