Our deep understanding of the policy context combines with our expertise in data analysis and economic modelling to give you the clear insight you need to make decisions confidently

Our mission is to provide clear and useful insights, based on rigorous and independent economic analysis, to address the complex challenges facing society As economies become increasingly integrated and complex, insights based on robust, empirical analysis become ever more important.

We take economic data and make it meaningful. Our bespoke models highlight trends and estimate impacts based on real-world outcomes, rather than unrealistic theories. Thanks to our emphasis on hard evidence, we can advise you with clarity and confidence. Our economists work with organisations around the world, providing in-depth assessments of specialist topics and cross-sector overviews. Whatever your requirements, chances are we’re well equipped to help. We also run bespoke courses in econometrics and economic modelling, so you can develop the capabilities of your in-house team.

We look for people who can provide rigorous, quantitative analysis and deliver it to our clients with confidence and clarity. Our reputation is based on delivering penetrating insight, so we recruit and develop people with an ability to digest, interpret and summarise key messages.

At every level of the organisation we like to stretch and challenge our staff, so they continue to learn, and develop their skills and experience. In return, we offer a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment, flexible working, and a strong commitment to high-quality training and development from day one.
