Business decisions are strongly affected by the macroeconomic environment. Appropriate strategies, objectives, and measures, therefore, require two things. Firstly, prompt and comprehensive information, and secondly, an analytical framework that reveals the relevance of actual or expected changes which influence business decisions. Kiel Economics offers both.
Kiel Economics advises public institutions, financial firms, and various industries. Our advisory covers data management, analyses, forecasts, scenarios of regional and global macroeconomic environment, and its effects on microeconomic decisions. Furthermore, Kiel Economics develops and distributes computer-aided analytic tools which allow our clients to make their own analyses, forecasts, and scenarios.
