Datum Research specializes in the intersection between macroeconomics, geopolitics, and cyber-related subjects.
WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to offer accessible, institutional-caliber research concerning macroeconomics, geopolitics, and the cyber domain.
Each publication will strive to provide an informative, grounded reference to guide further professional inquiry.
Targeting Spring/Summer 2024 for its subscription service, Datum Research will begin to roll out the following publications:
Monthly publications regarding markets, geotechnopolitics, computing, or anything in between
Bi-weekly digests of key narratives germane to global markets and previews of potential risk developments
Timely, ad hoc analyses regarding important events (e.g. FOMC)
Focused explorations of topical ideas and methods at a more technical or granular level
Examinations of topic areas benefitting from a diversity of viewpoints
Periodic surveys of foundational concepts
Please provide a suitable email address to be notified about our subscription research service and interim publications.
Quality, understandable research should be available to any professional, regardless of their ability to access exclusive institutional platforms. Against a backdrop of integrated markets in an increasingly multipolar world, technological upheaval has only further necessitated a well-informed global citizenry. While authorship may be a fundamentally subjective exercise, Datum Research exists to establish context and provide useful points of reference pertaining to many of the narratives and developments that may shape our future.
