Our three decades of experience providing independent macro research to investors underpins everything that we do at GlobalData TS Lombard. We combine global macro themes and a deep understanding of key countries to deliver a unique globally-consistent approach, as such our macro strategy recommendations at a regional or sector level always reflect the implications of 'big-picture' macro analysis of global themes. Unlike other researchers who specialise in a specific geography or sector, our outputs benefit from the full spectrum of knowledge from across our entire organisation, both our macroeconomic research hub in London and our local teams across the world. This allows us to understand how events or flows at the global level will impact on individual economies and investments.
We provide confident insights into shifting global macro trends, the timing of turning points and how they will unfold at regional and country level. Our analysis is based on a deeper understanding of the implications of political and economic events and the interconnectedness of the global economy.
Our Approach to Macro Research
Our research team scouts the global economy for emerging macro trends and then explores how they impact individual countries and global markets. As a company, it’s in our nature to question things and look for those places where risk and opportunity may be understated or overstated. We do this by considering the fundamental building blocks of economic forecasting – sectoral balances, financial flows, and money and credit growth. Vitally, we look at these economic drivers through the frame of our global economic, policy, and political knowledge, which is outside the range of vision of many forecasters. We also build proprietary models and processes to monitor global leading indicators, macroeconomic indicators and financial flows.
This allows us to deliver actionable, courageous views that takes the full macro picture into consideration.
