Financial institutions need to balance investment, lending, and strategy decisions against a complicated, ever-changing and uncertain international economics environment. Experts in the economics of finance and banking, Oxford Economics provides clients with macroeconomic and market analysis combining a quantitative and qualitative approach to support decision-making.
How we can help
We support banks, investment banking organisations, asset managers and other financial institutions with forecasts, scenarios and risk assessment tools that can be used to support investment decisions, meet regulatory requirements or promote their organisation as a thought leader.
Stress testing and scenarios
With over 40 years of experience producing independent forecasts and scenarios, our macro-modelling and scenario-planning solutions meet the stress-testing requirements of domestic and international regulators. In addition to our expertise in the economics of finance and banking, for managers of alternative assets, including real estate and infrastructure, we can also help with transaction due diligence and ongoing performance reviews.
Asset allocation and investment strategy
Our asset manager service covers cross asset, fixed income, equities, and foreign exchange for global and emerging markets. Combining our macro themes and understanding of international economics with the expertise of our market strategists, we produce tactical asset allocation recommendations and strategy ideas clearly and consistently. We can also undertake custom forecasting and scenario analysis to examine the implications for financial assets and your investment portfolio of alternative economic outcomes.
Cross border lending and trade finance
Our sovereign and currency risk metrics, based on an impartial view of fundamentals, are used to structure and price commercial loans and trade finance transactions. Building upon our unique risk benchmarking tools, we can drill down to examine the key vulnerabilities that present a threat to the outlook for your investments, including potential downside scenarios that could result in sovereign distress and/or sharp currency depreciation.

“CMHC’s Stress Testing and ORSA team has started this year using Oxford Economics for the purpose of stress-testing. Our experience has been very positive. The software is sound, intuitive and user friendly. But most of all, it allows the user to understand the links between the variables and for a certain degree of customization.”
