Economic and Financial Forecasting
The economics division, Canbek Economics, has provided macroeconomic analysis and macroeconomic and financial forecasting services regarding Canadian, United States and global GDP and its component aggregates, short and long-term interest rates, exchange rates and commodity prices.
Geopolitical Investment Advisory Services
Geopolitical analysis and risk assessment requires a multi-disciplinary approach that is embedded in an understanding of history and the sociocultural composition of nations.
We have entered a period of increased geopolitical risk and turbulence emanating from climate change, the end of a unipolar and the emergence of a multipolar international system, the rise of populism and authoritarianism, and the acceleration of digital technologies and artificial intelligence, the likelihood of black swan events has risen dramatically.
The principals combine a background involving business, economics, history, political science, international relations, defence, physics, mathematics and statistics. Their work has focused on the Trans-Atlantic, European, Eurasian, Southeast European and Middle Eastern and North African regions of the world.
The publishing division, Canbek Publications, publishes books written by Dr. Ken Matziorinis on Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Business Economics, and International Economic Relations.
