BCA is the leading independent provider of global investment research. Since the firm was founded in 1949, BCA's mission has been to support its clients to make better investment decisions through leading-edge analysis and forecasts of all the major asset classes and economies. BCA does this in increasingly innovative ways from offices around the world, delivering insights that give investors real edge in fast moving markets.

Our unique approach is a legacy of the firm's pioneering founder, A. Hamilton Bolton. He developed an innovative and highly successful approach to forecasting trends in the economy and financial markets that earned BCA early acclaim among financial institutions, corporations, investors and academics.

Who are BCA

Mr Bolton championed the concept that national economies and their capital markets are led by shifts in financial liquidity, money supply and credit. His thinking was deeply influential. Indeed, so much so that in 1987, 20 years after Mr Bolton's untimely death, he was posthumously honoured by the Financial Analysts Federation with the prestigious Nicholas Molodovsky Award for his contributions to the field of financial market analysis.

BCA's reputation and capabilities grew further under the direction of J. Anthony Boeckh, who led the company from 1968 to 2001. Dr. Boeckh dramatically expanded the firm's research capabilities and global coverage by building a large team of experienced economists and researchers.

Today, BCA is the foremost global provider of leading-edge, precision analysis from its base in Montreal and local offices in London, New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Sydney, Cape Town and São Paulo.

BCA Research is part of Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC, a group of companies which operates a portfolio of international businesses providing online information, research and data, conference, investment institutes and learning solutions. Our primary customers are business and finance executives, industry analysts, professional advisors, academics and government officials.
