We make it easy for fund managers to understand the macro landscape
Our economists have a deep understanding of the interactions between the economy, inflation, and monetary policy. In times of uncertainty and rapid change, we provide crucial insights to help you navigate incoming headwinds and identify opportunities.
We understand that your time is precious. We provide clear, concise analysis that allows you to cut through the noise quickly and focus on what matters most for your positions.
We identify macro shifts that fund managers can exploit
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 react fast to market shifts and highlight the implications, helping you make quick, confident decisions when every second counts. And we help you explain those decisions to your clients.
