About BCA

Macro Research: Our Methodology

Our methodology is grounded in a thorough understanding of the macroeconomic environment and key investment themes. This in-depth, long-term research forms the foundation of our investment strategy recommendations, market analysis and forecasts.

BCA strategists incorporate fundamentals, technical analysis, models and sound judgment. Working in a collaborative environment conducive to independent thought, strategists and research analysts work together to arrive at big picture investment themes that will shape the investment outlook. Through applying these comprehensive themes as an overlay to our individual strategy services (geographic, asset class), we are able to produce the most thoughtful, leading-edge macro investment research available. BCA’s integrated and proven methodology has, over the past six decades, allowed BCA clients to experience exceptional returns and/or mitigate significant portfolio risks.
