Moody’s Analytics Wins Consensus Economics Forecast Accuracy Award

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial and economic
intelligence, has won the Consensus
Economics
2018 Forecast Accuracy Award for the United States.


To determine the winner, Consensus Economics examined forecasts for the
growth in US gross domestic product (GDP) and consumer prices (CPI) in
2018 made between January 2017 and December 2018. Moody’s Analytics
projections, based on its model of the global economy as overseen by
Chief Economist Mark Zandi, were the most accurate.

“We’re honored to earn this recognition from Consensus Economics, which
reinforces our commitment to bringing clients reliable forecasts and
insights,” said Cris deRitis, Deputy Chief Economist, who manages the
team that maintains the forecasts. “Our clients rely on us to provide
trusted economic scenarios for their strategic planning and risk
management needs.”

Moody’s Analytics US GDP and CPI forecasts—along with projections for
other market-moving indicators—are produced using our Global
Macroeconomic Model
. This structural econometric model predicts more
than 12,000 economic, demographic and financial time series, accounting
for nearly all global economic activity. Forecasts and scenarios
produced by the Global Macroeconomic Model are used in many Moody’s
Analytics solutions, including award-winning credit
risk
and structured
finance
offerings.

The Global Macroeconomic Model is available through the Moody’s
Analytics Scenario
Studio
platform, which allows users to generate economic scenarios
and forecasts in a collaborative real-time environment backed by
rigorous governance processes.

This win in the Consensus Economics Forecast Accuracy Awards adds to our growing
list
of awards and industry accolades.
