Multi Asset: Regional

US Political Strategy 

BCA Research’s US Political Strategy service provides market-relevant, data-driven, non-partisan, macroeconomic research with a focus on the US multi-asset investment environment, resulting in discretionary trade recommendations for those who invest in US assets.

Competitive Advantage

  • Investment Relevance - US Political Strategy separates the wheat from the chaff when it comes to policy developments for US-focused investors. It builds upon over 70 years of macroeconomic research at BCA and nine years of our Geopolitical Strategy service.
  • Analytical Framework - The US Political strategy uses our proprietary framework for analyzing politics. The method emphasizes “checks and balances” that determine whether key policies will actually take effect. We identify opportunities as well as risks, and aim to reveal when markets overrate or underrate political narratives.
  • Non-Partisanship - Our analysis responds to our clients’ interests – not to partisan biases. Coverage is politically neutral and centered on the US market.

Investors are too often forced to rely on the rumor mill in Washington, DC for policy insight. That might be good enough for the newspapers, but our clients expect better. We provide rigorous analysis of what the politicians, parties, and institutions are really capable of. Then we draw timely and actionable investment conclusions.
