Why political analyses?
Our research is designed to support time-pressed financial decision makers by putting the global economy and financial markets into perspective. We believe that political developments increasingly impact the financial markets and economic environment and vice versa. As little attention is given to political issues by in the economic research of other sources, we have a political department to provide you with regular updates on the possible implications of global political developments.
This is essential in today’s environment, a world in which - according to the world’s largest mutual fund PIMCO - “politics matters a lot for markets and the economy” and “there is a reversal going on form the invisible hand of governments to the visible fists of governments.” German Chancelor Angela Merkel puts it in other words and says: "There's a need to assert the primacy of politics over markets."
In order to help you understand this essential shift in what moves the markets, our political analysts work in the same way as our economic analysts. They review major publications by prominent research houses and distill the most conclusive insights and arguments to give you an easy to read perspective. In this way we hope to give you the latest insights into the crossroads at which politics and economics meet.
