Capital Economics delivers value to your bottom line
We partner with the world's major central banks to improve their global macro analysis and help their markets teams better manage reserve assets. Our cutting-edge platform allows different teams within central banks to tailor coverage to fit their needs. And our proprietary data and tools can be easily integrated into daily workflows and internal and external reports.
We make it easy for central banks to understand the global macro and market landscape
Our economists have a deep understanding of the interactions between the economy and global markets. We help central banks understand what's happening beyond their borders - and how big global shifts might affect their economies. We understand that your time is precious. We provide clear, concise analysis that allows central banks to cut through the noise quickly and focus on what matters most to them.
We identify the major global macro shifts - and explain what they mean for central banks
Our global team is constantly analysing what is happening – and what might happen next – in over 100 markets, economies, and sectors so you don’t have to.
We work with all parts of central banks to make better decisions, faster. Our economists provide macro input into inflation reports and internal research. And we help markets teams understand what macro shifts mean for reserve managers.
Improve and streamline your internal and external reporting
Our cutting-edge platform allows central banks to create tailored macro charts and data for use in internal models and published reports. Our tools save you time and help you explain complex issues internally and externally - improving both efficiency and credibility.
