We embrace uncertainty. Forecasting the future is hard. We often miss but usually less than most predictions. We see the future as a set of possible outcomes, never as one central scenario.

We are data & AI enthusiasts. We love to use large datasets and advanced AI when this brings clear value. We are optimistic about how technology is going to change economic forecasting for the better.

We are open to multiple perspectives. For each problem, we confront many views and models to build a unique solution.

Our work is evidence-based. Because nothing beats practice and actual results. We keep track of every forecast, analyse errors, improve the approach. Then repeat.

Efficiency is a top priority. We build solutions that let humans focus on what they are best at. And automate everything else.

We are transparent. Because our clients deserve realistic expectations and explainable results.
