Independent Economic and Investment Strategy Research

A coherent global view from diverse thought leaders. We take an eclectic approach to arrive at a coherent global view. Our strong, independent thinkers scan the horizon in different ways to identify and explore possible inflection points and emergent themes.  Deep country knowledge and historical perspective are core to our process. Our thought leaders, global economists and country specialists come together to choose the right tools with which to explore the implications for individual countries and financial markets. The key to our approach is that we are led by the theme, not the tool. Request a trial to see our approach in action.

30 year track record.
We have a 30 year track record in making bold, off consensus-calls at major inflection points in economic, political and market cycles. For example, building on our global macro and financial analysis to find imbalances and fragilities, we identified the coming storm of the Global Financial Crisis – identifying the crucial turning point in the cycle and calling the stock market bottom as recovery began. One of our key themes is Decarbonomics - The economics and policy of reducing reliance on greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions in energy production, manufacturing, transportation and other sectors of the economy and the drive for green energy and net-zero emissions.

Inflation will trick you

We summarize our View on transitory disinflation by painting three scenarios: the triangle, the late-23 gap and the flip-flop. In each, inflation has the final say after a period of disinflation through H2 2022 at least. READ ME

ECB: Bad tightening tempo

Mounting risks of persistent inflation and supply-side pessimism imply the ECB is happy to err on the side of over-tightening, like the Fed and BoE. But why wait for the recession to hit? Pressure to hike 50bps in July is rising.

The dreaded wage-price sprial

Central banks believe wages are now the main inflation threat. The BIS outlines the nightmare scenario for the monetary authorities. But we haven’t seen a genuine wage-price spiral in decades. READ ME

Bearish UK: Political attrition rather than shock

The political fuel for UK bearishness is less of the ‘accident’ variety…via a train wreck with the EU over Northern Ireland or Scottish secession … but flows instead from economic policy rolls of the dice in the struggle to keep hold of power. READ ME
