Prospects

Our flagship guide to understanding critical challenges ahead

Prospects, our annual series published within The Oxford Analytica Daily Brief®, assesses the outlook for key geographies, sectors and themes. Taking a one-year view, it provides an invaluable strategic guide for decision-makers to the risks and potential opportunities that lie ahead.

The series draws upon the same global network of experts and in-house analysts whose expertise produces the Daily Brief. As such, it is the product of a unique process designed to deliver rigorous, authoritative and impartial analysis. 

The Prospects series is published over a month-long period in November, looking at the year to come. A mid-year update is published around the halfway point in the year.
