What we do

Interlect Analytics provides independent research and analysis on macro trends and market dynamics in China. By leveraging our deep country knowledge and our quantitative textual and numerical analytics tools, we help investors, asset managers, multinationals and governments better understand the challenges and opportunities they face when engaging with China and its market.

Most economic and financial analyses on China predominantly rely on traditional numerical data or manual qualitative interpretations of policies. These approaches have often failed to capture significant episodes of risk in China’s markets in a timely fashion despite early signs in the textual data.

Our proprietary text-based indicators and quantitative analyses, coupled with rigorous numerical data analysis, offer a powerful alternative to quantify and forecast risks and movements in macro variables that are challenging to capture with conventional tools, and help our clients recognise emerging trends and risks ahead of the curve.
