Jennifer Lee
Director and Senior Economist

Jennifer has been with BMO Capital Markets Economics for well over a decade and is perhaps best known in the firm and with clients for her high-frequency data analysis on market-moving U.S. economic releases. Her entertaining, easy-to-understand and call-it-like-it-is writing style has earned her a devoted following. Jennifer is also one of the primary authors of the Department's morning commentary, providing analysis of major economic and political events. As well, she gives regular economic commentary to the global equities sales and trading team following the release of impactful economic data, and monthly presentations on macroeconomic trends to BMO's commercial bankers. Jennifer is frequently quoted in the print media and interviewed on the radio.

Prior to joining BMO, Jennifer was an economist at another Canadian bank for a few years in economic research, concentrating on banking sector trends and economic developments in Western Canada. She also had a stint with the Ontario government, focusing on labour and demographic studies. Jennifer graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics.
