Variant Perception exists to provide clients with high-value investment themes and actionable trades. We know your time is precious, so we only write about the most compelling themes that will help you make real returns – no economic analysis for its own sake.
Our institutional offering is divided into three broad categories, allowing investment managers to quickly identify the ideas and analysis most relevant to them. These categories focus on leading economic and liquidity indicators, broad macroeconomic themes, and the tactical analysis of market dynamics. Clients have access to all publications and monthly conference calls.
