Types of our bespoke projects

Test for various sensitivities to assess risks for an economy and financial markets or for your specific business

Decisionmakers need to make the best choice they can without 100% certainty. They need a framework for thinking about the future and understanding where risk arises and how they will react to it. We work with our clients to create a base case forecast and construct credible narratives for alternative outcomes. Our clients are therefore able to plan and act effectively if those risks materialise. ​

Assess market trends and better understand potential opportunities and risks ​

The supply chain is global. Geopolitics are shifting. Technology presents both opportunities and challenges. We assist our clients in answering ever-present questions such as:​

  • What is the outlook for the economy and how will it affect my sector?​

  • How much will my costs change in the next few years?​

  • Can I sell my product in a particular market and what level of growth can I expect?​

  • To what extent will a change in regulation/tariffs/government policy affect my business? ​

Add further credibility to your Capital Raising documents when pitching to potential investors 

Government policies and regulations change over time, altering demand and supply patterns and, by extension, revenues and costs. We help clients quantify the extent to which a policy may change the economics of their business and provide them with the evidence they need to advocate in their best interest. 

We help clients to quantify the value their business creates through both direct and indirect economic channels. This data-driven analysis is used in media campaigns and other messaging to raise public awareness of the contribution the company is making to the broader economy. 

Save time on research and build credibility with clients through our white-label reports

Capital Economics recently worked on a couple of different projects for Lomond Group, providing excellent economic and property market insights as support for Investment Committee submissions on large acquisitions. They understood the brief immediately and were flexible and responsive, which was very much appreciated in a time pressured deal environment. We were also very impressed by their insightful analysis, their access to several data sources to support their analysis and their clear reporting of complex issues. We would have no hesitation in working with Capital Economics again or recommending them to other businesses.
