Measuring economic activity in times of uncertainty

In times of uncertainty, indicators that measure economic activity and sentiment can commonly diverge, and the financial behaviours of businesses and consumers can be inconsistent with their economic expectations. In this report, we explore alternative data sources that we believe give a clearer picture of macroeconomic outcomes. We illustrate these examples in the context of Brexit and the global financial crisis – which highlight the difference that financial uncertainty and political uncertainty have on the macroeconomy.

So what do these developments mean for data buyers?

The ‘S’ in ESG – where to find the data

Relative to governance and environmental dimensions, investors find social factors the most difficult to incorporate into ESG analysis. Difficulty in defining social factors, their qualitative nature and the lack of corporate reporting on social issues are barriers to integrating these factors into investment decisions. Alt data sources, however, can offer investors ways to quantify qualitative social factors that need not rely on corporate disclosure information. In this report, we outline where to find datasets that measure social factors and how they can be integrated into an ESG strategy.
