Making a difference to our customers with forward-looking, quality research has always been at the heart of our business.
Wood Mackenzie started life in 1923 as a small, relatively unknown, Edinburgh-based stockbroker. By the 1970s, we had become one of the top three stockbrokers in the UK, renowned for the quality of its equity research.
Our success has always been underpinned by the clear and simple principle of providing trusted research and advice that would make a difference to customers. This was true when the first oil report was published by our equity analysts in 1973, and remains just as relevant to us today.
So much so that, over the past four decades, we have drawn upon our heritage to create a global research and consultancy business that has grown alongside the needs of its customers.
Having cultivated deep expertise in upstream oil and gas, we carefully broadened our focus to deliver the same level of detailed insight for every interconnected sector of the energy, chemicals, metals and mining industries we now serve around the world.
But heritage is more than just history.
Our expert analysts and consultants have connected us to some of the most significant events of our time – creating insight for governments, boards and CEOs who have helped shape the future direction of the world’s natural resources industries and their impact on society.
Today we are part of the Verisk family which has broadened our data and analytics platform and strengthened our ability to provide intelligence that helps drive growth and serve thousands of industry market leaders.
What endures is our focus on delivering excellent, forward-looking research,which underpins the analysis and advice we offer, and the knowledge that our success is intrinsically linked to the needs of our customers’.
