Oxford Economics is proud to announce that over the past two years combined it has been ranked top in FocusEconomics' Best Economic Forecaster Awards.
The global pandemic has been a huge test for economic forecasters. An event unprecedented in modern times has precipitated a contraction in the global economy far greater than in 2008-2009, and it unfolded over the course of weeks rather than quarters. Never ones to shy from a challenge, our team of 250 economists have worked tirelessly to produce what have proved to be the most accurate forecasts over the last two years, as recognised by FocusEconomics 2021 awards.
In each of the last 6 years Oxford Economics has been either the top or second for the most amount of awards won. The consistent accuracy of our forecasts across countries and time is thanks to our rigorous model based approach to forecasting which combines our market leading Global Economic Model and the experience and on the ground expertise of our global team of macroeconomists.
The FocusEconomics Analyst Forecast Awards are yearly awards that recognise the most accurate economic forecasters for the six key macroeconomic indicators (GDP, Fiscal Balance, Inflation, Interest Rate, Exchange Rate and Current Account) in 89 countries and for 22 commodities.
