4most, the leading risk analytics consultancy, has successfully launched a bespoke economics subscription service. The international service brings rigorous economic analysis to the challenges faced by the financial services sector.   

Feedback from the market indicated customers were not wholly satisfied with current offerings which some argue lacks sharp narrative behind the numbers, are not focussed on the right variables and often suffer from unexplained volatility.

4most’s approach is designed to rectify the above failings by focusing on the specific needs of a business. This understanding of bespoke challenges allows for greater integration of economic developments into the internal drivers of the business.

With numerous clients already having signed up from the UK and US, 4most say its early success is because of their approach of getting behind the detail to help clients to further understand specific emerging risks tailored to their business.

The announcement is the latest undertaking by the company which has developed a series of new propositions designed to broaden their offering and provide a dynamic alternative to the ‘Big 4’. 4most, which was established in 2011, has seen strong levels of growth throughout its six-year history, ranking 22nd in the most recent Sunday Times Fast Track league table for the fastest growing UK companies and 7th in this year’s Profit Track 100.

Keith Church, Head of Economics at 4most said: “We have listened to the market and created an offering that is tailored to the individual needs to our clients. I’m delighted with the reaction from clients and the feedback that it is helping decision makers make more informed decisions based on the insight and variables which matter to them most.”

David Twigg, Financial Services Director, Express Gifts Limited commented “The service is perfect for our business as we do not have an internal economics function. 4most help us to translate the macro economic environment into key metrics that matter to our business. We can then use these scenarios and importantly clear and concise commentary to help with business planning, forecasting and meeting the requirements of IFRS 9”.
