The art of investment is combining a top-down network approach with a bottom-up model-based understanding of economic interactions.
We deliver industry-leading economic insight on where the returns lie and what the risks are, through client-driven consultancy at market cost.
Our research and consultancy service is founded on three fundamental pillars:
Our market economics proposition is unique in the independent economic research world. It has become an industry benchmark, disrupting traditional disconnected research specialisms in an interconnected and reflexive global financial eco-system.
Our track record of outperforming institutional analytical models spans over two decades. It is built on accurate market analysis, consensus-leading policy predictions and timely foresight on the drivers and consequences of the Global Financial Crisis, across core economies, public finances, central bank policy and asset class themes.
Our depth is not measured by the ammount of detail we include in our research but by the longevity and impact of our core convictions. Our research is regularly flagged by clients as a guide for future thought development. We are committed to our proposition of economic rigour, market scope and research value.
An established track record and strong client relationships based on trust contribute half of the success of a macro-financial research product. The other half is less visible but crucial – market competence, analytical performance and client process functionality. That’s what makes a valuable client service.
Think tank market economics intelligence at your fingertips:
g+Exchange An interactive network of insights on key market, policy and macro developments.
g+ThinkLab Clients deliver a topical or thematic issue for research and debate.
g+Challenge Forums and meetings with leading policy experts to discuss investment themes, refine investment thought processes, challenge market theses, and launch new ideas.
In a MiFID II unbundled-research world, traditional investment insight delivery channels are becoming disrupted. New aggregator models encourage increased supply traffic, driving up opportunity costs for clients as subscription costs are locked in.
At the same time, traditional dealer research providers are cutting back on research cost and expert staffing, driving down quality, breadth and depth. Assuming a transparent bank pricing model, a typical research report would incur a client cost in the range of £1,350-2500 based on a two-analyst effort, or £55,000 per day based on a typical 40-analyst bank research group. Potential disruption to meeting client research needs for the purpose of asset allocation decisions could be much costlier.
We have a different cost model and a direct application into clients’ treasury management and asset allocation decisions. Our clients to receive insight in a structured, auditable and transparent way, consistent with their own compliance obligations and the highest professional ethical standards.
Our fintech solutions mean that our clients are fully compliant with incoming regulation. Our clients’ efficiency gains are commensurate to the scale of market disruption and marginal compliance costs.
Demand better. Question the conventional wisdom of the day.
Whatever the macro-risk financial climate, the evolution of international economic trends and financial interconnections can alter macro-financial relationships. Our focus is on indentifying actionable opportunities, and real risks, across the economic, geopolitical, technological, environment and social spectrum.
The art of successful investing is predicting the direction of macro risk travel.
