Scope Ratings’ macroeconomic forecasts now available on Macrobond and LSEG Eikon
The economic forecasts and variables are central to Scope’s forward-looking ratings and are now available on Macrobond and LSEG Eikon. On Macrobond, investors can access Scope forecasts on:
- real economic growth
- headline inflation
- official interest rates
- unemployment rate
- general government net lending/borrowing
- general government debt
“We publish our detailed forecasts in our bi-annual Sovereign Outlook but their availability on platforms like Macrobond and Eikon gives investors even easier and higher-frequency access to our key economic assumptions and forecasts,” says Dennis Shen, Senior Director at Scope Ratings. “We update our forecasts weekly on Macrobond and LSEG Eikon.”
“In addition, making our economic and fiscal forecasting as available as possible enhances the transparency of the global macroeconomic assumptions underlying our public credit ratings – across sovereign and non-sovereign rating sectors,” says Shen.
Investors can already find Scope’s macroeconomic forecasts on Bloomberg and they are also accessible through the FocusEconomics Consensus Reports. Alongside 40 economies, we provide forecasts for euro-area and world aggregates.
Scope plans to regularly increase the number of countries and indicators and extend the timeframe for which it makes forecasts and publishes results.
Access all Scope rating & research reports on ScopeOne, Scope’s digital marketplace, which includes API solutions for Scope’s credit rating feed, providing institutional clients access to Scope’s growing number of corporate, bank, sovereign and public sector ratings.
