Founded in 1999, we have gained an enviable reputation for original and insightful analysis, and have built up a diverse and distinguished client base. The majority are in the financial sector, including some of the world’s largest investment banks and wealth managers, as well as smaller and more specialist firms. But we also have a growing number of corporate clients from a wide range of sectors and industries, and many relationships with governments and central banks, both in advanced and emerging economies.
Capital Economics is majority-owned by its management and staff, with no business in securities or other financial products. We are therefore independent and have no conflicts of interest. Our loyalties are quite simply to our clients, to whom we pledge to provide full, unbiased coverage and to “tell it as we see it”, whether that is good or bad.
