Given the data limitations that we, as southern Africa face, it is important to understand the data that we have available, and to interpret and project it correctly and with care. We pride ourselves on doing just that. Our econometric models make use of multipliers and economic databases, compiled from primary research, to extract trends and calculate potential scenarios. This sets us apart from our competitors.
