Economic Research Company | Capital Economics

Capital Economics is one of the leading independent economic research companies in the world. Our large team of more than 60 experienced economists provides award-winning macroeconomic, financial market and sectoral analysis, forecasts and consultancy, from offices in London, New York, Toronto, and Singapore.

Founded in 1999, we have gained an enviable reputation for original and insightful analysis, and have built up a diverse and distinguished client base. The majority are in the financial sector, including some of the world’s largest investment banks and wealth managers, as well as smaller and more specialist firms. But we also have a growing number of corporate clients from a wide range of sectors and industries, and many relationships with governments and central banks, both in advanced and emerging economies.

Our publications are packaged into a wide range of services from which subscribers can choose according to their needs (and budgets). These include overview services covering the global economy and financial markets, as well as country and regional services producing detailed research for the US, Canada, Latin America, the UK, Western Europe, the Nordic countries and Switzerland, Emerging Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Emerging Asia, China, India, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, we offer three Commodities services (an overview service and dedicated coverage of Energy and of Metals) and a suite of Property services (covering the residential markets in the US and the UK and the commercial markets in the the US, UK and Europe).

Our economists are available for personal contact via telephone and email, and for presentations and webinars. We also host regular seminars for clients in major centres in North America, Europe and Asia. In addition, we undertake bespoke projects and consultancy.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Capital Economics, we are striving to create a diverse workforce and inclusive environment, which we believe are critical to help us make better decisions for the company, our employees and our clients. A diverse and inclusive workplace makes for more innovative, engaged and empowered employees, from whom business strength can be derived. This is particularly important in macroeconomic research, which relies on a diversity of views and opinions to be relevant and insightful.


The Board of Capital Economics is very pleased to announce the appointment of Joe Steele as CEO.

After spending the early part of his career in strategy, development and e-commerce roles at Expedia, TripAdvisor and Thomas Cook, Joe took on the CEO role at Bookatable and then at Encore Tickets. Bookatable and Encore were privately owned and Joe led them both through periods of development and growth and successfully transitioned them to new owners, Michelin and TodayTix Group respectively.

Joe’s deep experience and proven track record in building teams, digital marketing and technology-enabled growth convinced the Board that he has the skills to take the company forward.
