More Information

Michael Ashton is Managing Principal at Enduring Investments LLC, a boutique consulting and investment management company that offers focused inflation-market expertise.

Prior to founding Enduring Investments, Mr. Ashton worked as a trader, strategist, and salesman at several large sell-side Wall Street firms.

Since 2003 he has played an integral role in developing the U.S. inflation derivatives markets and is widely viewed as a premier subject matter expert on inflation products and inflation trading. While at Barclays, he traded the first interbank U.S. CPI swaps. He was primarily responsible for the creation of the CPI Futures contract that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange listed in February 2004 and was the lead market maker for that contract. Mr. Ashton has written extensively about the use of inflation-indexed products for hedging real exposures, including papers and book chapters on “Inflation and Commodities,” “The Real-Feel Inflation Rate,” “Hedging Post-Retirement Medical Liabilities,” and “Liability-Driven Investment For Individuals.” He frequently speaks in front of professional and retail audiences, both large and small, and runs the Inflation-Indexed Investing Association.

Mr. Ashton received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Trinity University in 1990 and was awarded his CFA charter in 2001. He is married with two children and lives in Morristown, New Jersey.
