Business Research

Drawing on the expertise of Lloyds Banking Group’s own economists as well as external market researchers, we provide in-depth analysis of the critical economic issues facing businesses across the UK.

We track business activity and sentiment amongst businesses of all sizes, on the issues that matter, including economic prospects. Our research and analysis spans the financial markets and industrial sectors, as well as the UK regions. Our aim is to inform our customers’ business decisions and help them plan successfully for the future.

Last year alone we helped 110,000 new start ups and our economic research is one aspect of the ongoing support we will provide these businesses as they look to grow.
