Our economic research team provides a strategic assessment of macroeconomic trends and interest rate and currency developments


Specially prepared economic and financial market forecasts form the basis of our analyses. These in turn are based on specifically developed analytical tools as well as generally available information sources.

Our analysts focus on the following:

Macroeconomic environment

The growth and inflation forecasts focus on Germany, the eurozone and the United States.

Interest rates and yields

The outlook is based on the key rates of important central banks, three-month money market rates and yields on 10-year government bonds. The forecast horizon is three, six and twelve months.


Forecasts for key currency pairs are provided for the coming three, six and twelve months.

We offer the results of our analysis in a variety of publications. These include the Capital Market Outlook (every two months) and the ECB Preview (monthly). We also comment on the latest economic data releases for Germany and the euro area and the ECB’s rate decisions. The forecast results are incorporated into numerous surveys with a financial market background.
