RaboResearch - Economic Research

Our researchers

RaboResearch is Rabobank's knowledge center. It consists of three teams that focus on (1) Dutch regional, sectoral and macro economics, (2) global macro economics and financial markets and (3) Dutch and global food & agribusiness. We follow, analyze and predict national and international (macro) economic, political and financial developments. The focus is not only on the near term, but also on the medium and long term. Our research results in descriptions and forecasts or scenarios for economic factors.

We translate our analyses into applied knowledge products that we distribute among customers so that they can make better decisions. On this site you will find the national and international (macro) economic analyses of these teams.

RaboResearch Netherlands extensively covers the Dutch housing market, labour market, government finances, financial sector, and demographic and regional economic developments. Together with the specialists from sector management we closely follow developments in all non-F&A sectors of the Dutch economy. To position Rabobank as a knowledge driven financial service provider, sector management supports relationship managers and product specialists with knowledge on sectors and on companies.

RaboResearch Global Economics & Markets analyses and forecasts economic developments around the world. It also conducts country risk analysis and to that end writes country reports, provides country and sovereign risk ratings.
RaboResearch Global Economics & Markets also aims to provide wholesale clients with sufficient access to meaningful information and analysis to help with their risk management and investment decisions. Coverage areas include Macro, Rates (Govvies, SSA), FX and Credit (Financials, Corporates, ABS). Our analysts and strategists who provide this kind of research are located in dealing rooms in Utrecht, London, Hong Kong, New York and Sao Paolo.
The following GEM Markets colleagues regularly write contributions on this website: Elwin de GrootJan Lambregts and Michael Every. Visit the GEM Markets website.

The results of the research are found in internal memorandums, external studies, columns and articles in newspapers, economic magazines and journals. Our economists also present their findings to internal and external clients, as well as the media. Periodic publications of our department include the Economic Quarterly Report, Outlook for the next year, the Dutch Housing Market Quarterly and Economic Updates.
