About Macro Hive

Showcasing the Best Macro & Financial Market Research & Strategy…

We aim to deliver the best macro ideas. We strive to give a different angle and we like to challenge. We want to make our members stand out from the crowd. We do this by harnessing the experience of a network of leading thinkers led by Bilal Hafeez. We also embrace advances in machine learning to support the work, but we never lose site of the power of the human brain. Importantly, we look outside of our own work too. We scour the world for the best analysis whether academic work, blogs, or podcasts. We curate the best. Crucially, we present everything in an accessible form where you can get the key insights with minimum time. Now, it’s time for you to join The Hive.

We challenge the traditional research business model, the way you consume research and the way you think about investing

PREMIUM CONTENT

Hive Exclusives Through our Exclusives, we bring the highest quality of original pieces and analysis with the help of over 35 experienced global macro researchers led by Bilal Hafeez.

Deep Dives Our Deep Dive product will curate, evaluate and contextualise academic papers and relevant books in today’s narrative. These sources of information are often overlooked by industry professionals, and understandably so given the academic jargon and the time commitment required to appreciate them.

Institutional
Outlooks COMING SOON: Imagine one pool of resource where you can study the economic and financial market outlooks produced by key buy-side and sell-side institutions, and so you can compare analysis and forecasts like-for-like. We’ll, of course, identify common themes and trends across these institutions for you, but we won’t hold you back to discover your own findings.

CURATED CONTENT

Bilal's Top Picks Our insightful original content is supplemented by a range of the best curated material. We sift through mountains of content out there for you across blogs, research papers, sovereign papers, think tank reports, articles and platforms to bring you a filtered lens on what matters.

Podcast Playlists We bring you the five best podcasts to tune into every week, and we summarise and contextualise these podcasts to ensure you are as informed as you need to be.
