Analyse. Debate. Act. (ADA) is an independent macroeconomic and political research company specialist on Europe. ADA couples traditional rigorous econometric modeling with the proprietary data and intelligence on political changes and policy implementation, as well as proprietary information we collect on countries’ competitiveness in the corporate sector. ADA has developed its own methodology to monitor and forecast shifts’ in voters’ perception and voting intention. We have perfected this technique over the past two years and it consistently signaled anomalies in the more widely available opinion polls in all major political events since the UK EU referendum (2016), including the recent Italian election. We include the intelligence we gather from these exercises in our country monitoring and Europe Monitor publications. In every country that is routinely monitored by ADA in Europe, we maintain a regular dialogue with policy makers, small and medium sized non-financial corporations and voters (via our surveys on voters’ perception). This allows us to have a broad perspective on factors that affect economic growth and financial markets.

We are a group of highly technical Economists who recognise that uncertainty is a global problem that impedes growth. We partner with businesses (you) to carefully measure economic uncertainty and hence manage it, thus helping you understand the 'unknown', keeping your business growing rather than stalling. By doing this, we establish
demand and supply outlook amongst many other important aspects of business relevant information. We also provide 'what if' scenarios to understand the economic implications of Brexit. Our work takes advantage of technology developments by using behavioural Economics linked with data analytics to understand human tastes, reasons for purchase and changes in preferences, thereby getting your business ahead of the competition.

X Y and Zee
xyandZee provides independent investment research covering the global equity income sphere - dividends paid and cash spent on share buybacks - from both a top-down thematic perspective and bottom-up individual company approach. We believe that far too much attention is paid to share price movements when, over the longer-term, it has been proven that returns have been provided by dividends, dividend growth and inflation. The notion of a reinvested and compounding dividend stream seems lost to many, and that’s a real shame.

Nick Dewhirst, Founder of Investors RouteMap, passed away in July 2013. A member of Euro IRP since joining the association in September 2010, Nick was an active supporter of our work, as well as an enthusiastic champion for independent research.
Before founding Investors RouteMap in 1998 Nick spent more than a quarter of a century in the City advising European institutional investors and individuals on foreign markets. During his career he held positions at a succession of leading investment banks. His last positions, before founding Investors RouteMap, were as Head of Equity Sales, London for Dresdner Bank and European SmallCap Coordinator with Kleinwort Benson.
Nick was not only well respected but much liked, and showed his support through his engagement, enthusiasm and energy, especially when attending our Member Events and Annual General Meetings. He will continue to be missed by the association and its members. We express our deepest sympathies to his family, who continue to maintain the website and the ethos of Nick’s work.
