Do you want to determine what economic or fiscal footprint your company has but don’t have an in-house economist? Then you’ve come to the right place. As an “economist on demand,” we’re at your disposal when economic processes are in need of analysis – regardless of whether they relate to micro or macroeconomics.

Society – and thus also the market economy – are subject to trends that also affect your business.

Our crystal ball for seeing into the future is comprised of official statistics, in-house and commercial databases, as well as proprietary panel data. This enables us to anticipate the macroeconomic effects of specific developments. We forecast changes in social structures or in markets and regions, allowing your business to prepare for and adapt to the changes ahead.

Decisions on socially and economically relevant topics affect and influence entire markets. One example: How do exhaust emission standards impact sectors or regions? What are the effects of trade barriers on the macroeconomic context?

Commodities are the fuel of a business. If the well runs dry, the wheels stop turning. To prevent this from occurring, we use scientific methods to validate specific commodity risks for companies and business sectors. With the help of our databases, we can generate a tailored risk profile for every kind of business – regardless of whether you’re interested in the global supplier structure for copper, the static lifetime of titanium or investment volumes in Zimbabwean mining operations.
