pi Economics is a financial economic consultancy serving some of the best performing hedge funds in the world and also major institutional asset managers.
The company was founded in 2003 by respected international economist Tim Lee in order to provide independent macroeconomic analysis giving deep insight into the behaviour and outlook for global financial markets.
Tim Lee was one of the very few economists and analysts to forecast accurately the financial and economic crisis, specifically:
- the housing and credit bust
- the economic and stock market collapse
- bankruptcy of the banks
- zero interest rates
- unwinding of currency carry trades, and
- the crises in various emerging economies.
This is documented in the titles of past research and also in examples of past research that are now available on this website.
