We look at what is happening and why it is happening

We combine our analytics with the ‘oh so important’ explanatory narrative of not just what is happening, but why it is happening. Because the ‘why‘ is just as important as the ‘what‘? You simply cannot predict what will happen next in the market’s story if you don’t know the beginning and middle part.
