Our insights

Financial Analysts in front of computers

Exceptional research, uncommon curiosity

Our analysts typically come from the industries they cover, resulting in provocative and unconventional perspectives. They help us originate compelling investment ideas—instead of distributing ideas from someone else.

When you’re looking for perspective

A timeless question runs through all our investment research: Is this time different? Stock and bond investors must continuously recalibrate their thinking—weighing data, policy, and the impact of geopolitical events on global macroeconomics, and how these trends affect individual countries and companies and shape security selection.

What global forces afoot right now will sway world markets or make your portfolio swerve? Each quarter, we provide our point of view. Above all, our insights are prescriptive, focusing on the “so what” for economic and market-related events. Rather than reciting what you already know—we’ll help you grasp the implications for your investment stance.
