Our profound market experience, coupled with our total independence from financial institutions, ensures that our analysis serves your best interests.

Our lead economist, Cameron, boasts a 20-year career in the field, having served as the Chief Economist at ANZ for over 11 years and holding positions at the National Bank, Treasury, and Statistics New Zealand.

Bagrie Partners is a tailored offering that works closely with organisation helping them achieve their objectives.

This can cover a wide variety of economic areas including written work, strategy, staff briefing, assistance with submissions, client functions / presentations, economic updates, and industry assessments.

A key feature of Bagrie Partners is that it is exclusive to one firm in each industry. This is about offering unique value on an exclusive basis. We don’t go down the road and do the same thing for your competitor!

This service ideally suits businesses who can see merit in having an economist, but on a part-time basis.

We have clients we work ranging from a couple of days per month to one day per quarter.

Talk to Cameron about how it all works.


Cameron has a deep understanding of financial markets, is not aligned to any financial organisation and the experience and credibility to tackle tough economic issues and take a stand.

He takes a direct, straight-talking approach. His ability to communicate trends and developments in layperson’s language gives clients a framework to think about the issues that affect them.

Bagrie Economics is a heavily customised model of research rather than solely a contracting and project based one.
