Macro Hive is a leading independent provider of global macro research and strategy. Our worldwide user base spans 160 countries and over 1,000 institutions, with clients including 7 of the top 10 largest banks (e.g. JP Morgan, Citi and Bank of America) and the top 5 macro and multi-strategy hedge funds, as ranked by Bloomberg.

Our mission is to give retail and institutional investors a trusted platform to discover the best investment opportunities in an accessible and concise format. To do this, we combine best-in-class human and artificial intelligence, and our team of seasoned experts features ex-heads from global organisations such as JP Morgan, Nomura, Deutsche Bank, the IMF, and the NY Fed.

How Macro Hive Uses Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

At Macro Hive, we believe artificial intelligence and machine learning have an increasingly important role to play in the investment process.

Our team of experienced researchers leverage all the latest technologies, including large language models (LLMs) such as those that power chatbots like ChatGPT, to develop innovative, data-driven solutions to complex financial problems. Specifically, we use predictive analytics, deep learning, and natural language processing to build state-of-the-art models and indicators in search of alpha signals across asset classes.
