OUR RESEARCH


OUR RESEARCH APPROACH

Building on analysis of national balance sheets, Continuum Economics follows a rigorous, systematic approach to deciphering the dynamics of the global economy, unearthing opportunities and identifying risks that traditional research can miss.

Medium-term (6mth-2yr) forecasts/research is complemented by long-term (2-10yr) forecasts and themes. Scenario Analysis combined with our proprietary country risk model ‘Country Insights’ covering 174 countries, meets the needs of asset and wealth managers, central bank and government organisations, risk professionals, private equity and corporations.

Short-term tactical analysis covering key financial markets, accompanied by comprehensive economic and policy insights, technical analysis and intelligence on market psychology and flows are synthesised into actionable daily/weekly strategies. This research has been widely used by sales and trading teams in banks, alongside hedge funds and active asset managers since 1994.
