A large global pension fund

Making long-term investments is challenging, as investors need to cut through the short-term noise and identify the fundamental performance drivers. One of the largest pension funds globally has worked with Oxford Economics since 2020 to gain comprehensive understanding of the economic fundamentals that underpin asset prices.

To make long-term investments, investors need long-term thinking. That’s why one of the largest pension funds globally subscribed to Oxford Economics’ Global Macro Service, Global Cities Service and Regional City Services. They currently use our macroeconomic forecasts as one of the references in reviewing market fundamentals for investment.

The Challenge

As long-term investors, our client needed to have a solid understanding of the macro economy and forecast market mega trends which affect their investments.

Our client needed to review investment strategy and memos periodically to make sure they were aligned with market fundamentals. When looking into specific investments, our client also needed to conduct full market analysis to build a business case. In both cases, our client required solid, and transparent data to support their decision-making.

Our client invested in emerging markets, in which data can be hard to acquire and may not be reliable.

As a global pension fund, our client invested in many countries. Their global team needed to be able to compare different countries and cities using consistent indicators from a global data platform.
