We are excited to announce that we have acquired Macroeconomic Advisers, an independent research firm based in St. Louis, Missouri. Macroeconomic Advisers, widely recognized as one of the most respected forecasters of the US economy, specializes in monitoring, analyzing and forecasting developments in the US economy. They leverage this foundation to quantify various policy options considered by the new US administration, as well as perform scenario analysis to enable financial institutions to comply with an array of regulatory requirements. The combination of Macroeconomic Advisers with our own award-winning US macro, Industry, and US regional teams will allow us to provide unparalleled coverage to our clients with a special focus on policy and financial markets.
