“Macrobond is one of the data tools I use in my teaching and research projects. Its various features allow users of different levels and experience to find and inspect a wealth of macro data, metadata and point-in-time data. Macrobond’s Excel add-in and API access allows me to include data collection in my programming (R, Matlab, etc.). The support team is very responsive and eager to help and always finds an answer even to the most difficult question”.

“The efficiency that Macrobond has brought to my work day cannot be understated. It has the data I want, I trust the integrity, it updates quickly and the user interface is intuitive. Macrobond can helpfully draw data from other data sources, including proprietary data along with interacting easily with Excel and PowerPoint. I regularly use the Macrobond presentation feature to build chart packs that are used as an important part of our investment process.”

“Macrobond has been very helpful for improving the productivity of our teams across economics, strategy and quant. The data analytics and charting capabilities are very powerful yet easy to operate. The add-ins with PowerPoint and Excel are hugely beneficial for streamlining processes and reducing time spent on maintenance. In quant, we utilise the ability of uploading our own time series to seamlessly integrate visualisations in slide packs with our coding packages.”

Macrobond client since 2012

“This autumn, we switched to Macrobond. The transition is progressing very smoothly, and all users are delighted by the intuitive tree structure of the database. The real and long-term benefits are the built-in modelling features, no mathematical coding limitations, and ticker code integration with Bloomberg. Further, we have been able to move complex procedures between Excel and R directly into Macrobond. Clearly, our productivity has gone up, and we are convinced that we will be better positioned for future research demands. I can now state that my FX and oil models have never been better. Thank you Macrobond.”

“When our previous subscription was up, we shopped around. I liked Macrobond instantly. It really is critical to have software that can visually show our ideas, whether those are charts, tables or data. With one click in Macrobond you can update everything and send it out easily. Another benefit is when working with the team. I’m in Hong Kong and my boss is in New York so having a shared drive that lets us see each other’s edits is great to have.”
