Bespoke research

Capital Economics undertakes commissioned research projects for companies, government agencies and trade associations on a wide array of subjects ranging from straight macroeconomic forecasting to the outlook for individual sectors. We have a particular strength in financial economics and the economics of property, both residential and commercial, and we have staff with substantial econometric and modelling expertise. Many of our commissions have involved the relationship between a macroeconomic or financial issue and its implications for an individual business sector. As well as our full-time staff, we have a network of outside specialists and academic experts who can be called upon to work with us on particular projects.

Recent commissioned research has included studies on:

  1. The impact of the euro on the retail savings market;
  2. The effect of the climate change levy on retailers;
  3. The impact of deflation on pension funds;
  4. Prospects for the commercial property industry;
  5. The outlook for car prices;
  6. The impact of inflation on claims for damages;
  7. GDP and consumers’ expenditure in a medium-term corporate plan;
  8. The future of money in an electronic world;
  9. The outlook for land prices;
  10. The economic prospects affecting a major commercial property development;
  11. How effectively businesses manage their property usage;
  12. An analysis of single person mortgages;
  13. Stress-testing the balance sheet of financial institutions;
  14. Economic scenarios for the planning departments of major financial institutions;
  15. The long-term outlook for long-term interest rates in Asia;
  16. The importance of the family business sector to the UK economy; and
  17. Housing market overview for the Callcutt Review of housebuilding delivery.

If you are interested in commissioning a study from us then we would be delighted to discuss your requirements and to tell you more about what Capital Economics has to offer.
