Global analysis, local expertise
Oxford Economics was founded in Oxford in 1981 as a commercial venture with Oxford University’s business college. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the world’s foremost independent global advisory firms. That growth has been—and still is—firmly rooted in the local markets we call home, in over 20 major business centres around the world. The breadth and depth of our expertise means that we know your market. We understand the trends that matter most to you. And we speak your language.
More than 2,000 leading companies and government institutions rely on our services for business-critical forecasting and scenario activities. With 21 offices around the world and deep knowledge of the markets we forecast and analyse, we combine broad geographic coverage with local expertise.
Our 300 economists and analysts have extensive industry, financial, and public-sector experience. They are experts at applying advanced and innovative economic and research tools to provide valuable insights into pressing business, financial, and policy issues.
Our economists draw on the most reliable, up-to-date data, and leading-edge quantitative frameworks to ensure accurate and timely analysis. Our forecasting track record is one of the best in the industry.
We anticipate and quickly respond to emerging trends with timely, incisive research. Our team is here to support you with your questions via email, telephone and video calls. All clients have access to our regular schedule of conferences, roundtables, webinars, and podcasts discussing the latest economic developments and prospects.
