U.S. Macroeconomic Research

Our U.S. coverage focuses on the key data which drive Federal Reserve policy decisions. We track the labor market, inflation, economic growth and financial market developments daily, filtering out the noise from the signal. We set out clearly our views on the path of the economy and the Fed’s likely response.

Euro Zone Macroeconomic Research

Our coverage focuses on the EZ economy as a whole, detailed coverage of the four major economies, and Switzerland. We also provide in-depth analysis of policy decisions by the ECB and SNB, and the region’s key asset markets. We focus on forward-looking data and always put our analysis into a relevant market context. We recognise the Eurozone’s structural challenges - incomplete monetary union and a rapidly ageing population - but we stress that this story is separate from the cyclical developments.

U.K. Macroeconomic Research

Our U.K. Service examines the outlook for interest rates, gilt yields and sterling. We scrutinise inflation, economic growth, fiscal policy and the labour and housing markets and their implications for monetary policy. The likely form and impact of brexit also is monitored closely. Samuel Tombs has spent nearly a decade exclusively analysing the U.K. Economy.

China + Macroeconomic Research

Our China+ service decodes the Chinese data, unveiling what’s really going on, and providing proprietary estimates of key statistics such as real GDP growth. On this groundwork, we are able to build high-conviction forecasts, with liquidity trends and PBoC action featuring highly. The service includes timely coverage of Japanese GDP and CPI, and valuable analysis of Korean exports as a bellwether for global trade. Our BoJ and BoK watch reports offer incisive previews and coverage of the main events and their implications.

Asia Emerging Macroeconomic Research

Our Emerging Asia service tracks India and the fastest-growing economies in ASEAN, which as a bloc is the world’s fifth largest economy. Specifically, we will keep you abreast of developments in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Not only are these the next frontiers for global trade in the post-crisis period, but they also represent some of the biggest untapped consumer markets. The service includes analysis and forecasts for key macroeconomic indicators, as well as the outlook for FX and monetary policy.

Latin America Macroeconomic Research

We track the major economies in the region, focussing on Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. We keep you up to date with both economic and political developments, with a close eye on the implications for currencies and central bank policy. Our Chief LatAm economist, Andres Abadia, is Colombian and a native Spanish speaker, so we go straight to the primary sources.
