To determine the top economic forecasting firms in these annual rankings, FocusEconomics assesses the accuracy of forecasts submitted to its monthly survey over a 24-month period. The 11 awards we received this year reflect the accuracy of our macroeconomic forecasts for key indicators between January 2017 and December 2018.
“Our clients need reliable economic forecasts for risk management, compliance, and strategic planning,” said Cris deRitis, Deputy Chief Economist. “They trust Moody’s Analytics to help them make decisions with confidence. We value that trust and are especially pleased by this recognition from FocusEconomics because it speaks to the accuracy of our forecasts.”
Moody’s Analytics forecasts for market-moving indicators worldwide come from our Global Macroeconomic Model. Nearly all global economic activity is accounted for in the 12,000 economic, demographic, and financial time series it produces.
The Global Macroeconomic Model is available through the Moody’s Analytics Scenario Studio platform, which lets users generate economic scenarios and forecasts in a collaborative real-time environment supported by rigorous governance processes.
We routinely assess the accuracy of our economic projections, and share those findings. This article details our thinking and assumptions in late 2017 as we considered the outlook for 2018, and compares our forecasts with what transpired.
