In a complex world, we help you see more clearly

When you’re grappling with policy recommendations for a government, business or NGO, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with information. We can help. Our rigorous, independent and quantitative approach to data analysis and economic modelling gives you practical insights based on evidence rather than theory.

In an increasingly complex and connected world, with access to endless data, we provide clarity.

Over the last 30 years we’ve helped organisations such as the European Commission, the British Government, Innovate UK and WWF tackle some challenging questions. Our economists have expertise in a wide range of topics, including macro-economy and industries; energy, climate and the circular economy; employment and skills; regions, cities and local areas; infrastructure and econometrics and economic modelling courses.

When you need a deeper understanding of your options, we’re here to help.
