We ask the right questions. That’s why we can provide the right answers. Our comprehensive economic expertise is combined with many years of empirical know-how. We can offer you our expertise in the form of in-house panels, or create customized business surveys tailored precisely to your concerns.

We routinely collect shareholder and stakeholder opinions, positions, and attitudes, and use this information to draw the relevant conclusions for the groups most affected by them: associations and interest groups, individual sectors, mayors or politicians, businesses, sectors and even the entire German economy.

In the case of our individual company, employee and association surveys, we use custom-tailored studies to give our clients answers to their specific questions, flexibly and swiftly.
