Unique Benefits


Total Analysis.

The key to Total Analysis is our awareness of the interdependence between politics, economics and financial markets; between top-down, global, macro analysis and bottom-up, country-specific micro analysis. Understanding this reflexivity, whilst having the breadth and depth of knowledge to apply it, is what allows us to forecast with accuracy and confidence.

Track record.

Total Analysis has helped us anticipate most major macro and market events over the past decade, including the 2008 sub-prime crisis and resultant global recession, China's economic slowdown, Greece's debt restructuring and subsequent Eurozone crisis and Brazil's 2012 currency sell-off. It has also facilitated rapid co-ordination of country and industry-level strategies in the wake of unforeseen global events, including the Japanese Tsunami (2011), Arab Spring (2011-2013) and Russia's annexation of Crimea (2014).

We cover 195 global markets, specialising in frontier and emerging markets
