We specialize in analyzing economic, social, political, and geopolitical events with the purpose of identifying domestic and global trends that are likely to have an impact on the financial markets in the United States and abroad. We also monitor and comment on significant sector-specific legislative and regulatory initiatives. Our principal product is a weekly newsletter that is e-mailed to clients on Monday morning, and made available on our web site at www.thepoliticalforum.com. We are also available for conference calls with clients.
