Supporting our members as they refine and supplement existing risk management practices in response to changing macroeconomic conditions
Macroeconomic trends play a key role in shaping the future. How the overall economy behaves – markets, businesses, consumers and governments – can have significant impact on financial portfolios and company valuations. Understanding fiscal and monetary policies, trade and investment flows, political developments on a national and international scale, is key to evaluating potential risk. Intermediate variables of particular interest include equities and commodities markets, business cycles, unemployment, inflation, interest rates, prices, rates of economic growth and exports/imports.
Our Macroeconomic publications cover a wide range of related topics and include timely discussion on recently trending issues.
