Talk to us


With our forecast track record, the high level of data granularity covered in our models, the in-depth analysis of our 300 in-house economists, and the world’s leading globally integrated macro model, Oxford Economics produces robust, forward-looking distributions and associated probabilities for the macroeconomic outlook. This comprehensive and flexible service includes up to six economic scenarios and their associated probabilities, spanning 85 countries.

What our service includes

Up to six macroeconomic scenarios

Our service includes two upside and three downside scenarios around our baseline to help you assess local and global risk and cover the expected lifetime of assets.

Detailed reports

Comprehensive reports explicitly detail changes from the last set of scenarios based on our current trends and risks analysis, informed by proprietary global surveys of around 200 leading companies and external benchmarks.

Regular updates and in-house support

Scenarios are updated quarterly to reflect changes to the base case and emerging risks. We also provide full client support to answer questions about our data and forecasts.

Comprehensive variable coverage

Scenario outputs for all 85 countries included on the Global Economic Model cover the key drivers of impairment: property prices, financial asset prices, income gearing, interest and FX rates.

What's our methodology

The methodology used to construct these forward-looking distributions is similar to that used by the European Central Bank and Bank of England when assessing the risks around their central projections.

Based on these robust distributions, we derive coherent economic scenarios along with their probability. Crucially, our approach ensures that the only changes to scenarios from quarter to quarter are due to a transparent assessment of emerging or receding risks utilising external benchmarks and proprietary surveys on the nature and severity of risks to the economy.

What is our modelling approach?

At the centre of our approach is our renowned Global Economic Model, which integrates individual country models through global assumptions about trade volume and prices, competitiveness, interest and exchange rates, capital flows and commodity prices.

The model’s unique open-architecture framework enables us to assess the impacts of adverse scenarios on economic indicators and a range of asset classes. The model’s flexible software allows variables to be added to meet our clients’ needs when assessing the impact on portfolios of multiple economic scenarios.
