Daily Brief

The Oxford Analytica Daily Brief® delivers global analysis that gives top corporate and government executives a proven edge in predicting the course of key trends — and preparing for contingencies.

Through daily dissection and analysis of fresh developments in global politics, macroeconomics and the political economy — guided by the latest academic research — the Daily Brief offers qualitative predictions and guidance as to the impact of events ‘just over the horizon’.

How can the Daily Brief give you an edge?

Actionable intelligence not news
We give you hard-edged predictive analysis, cutting through the chatter, highlighting the issues that mean the most to you, and explaining their potential impact. We focus on what today’s events mean for you tomorrow, next week and next year.
Highlight risks and opportunities others ignore
We understand that some of the most serious economic and security risks can hide behind apparently benign market consensus. We are constantly alert to new dangers, so that our clients are not blindsided.
Sober assessment, not reassurance
Leaders charged with committing their companies or countries to billion-dollar investments or strategic choices want a sober assessment of which risks are real, and which are ephemeral. False alarms and hyperbole can be just as damaging as risks that go undetected.
Cutting-edge ideas
The Daily Brief provides strategic thinkers a concise heads-up on new ideas and innovations emerging from the global business community and the academic world, and explains their relevance to corporate and government decision-makers.
