TBR - a leading economic research and strategy consultancy

Trends Business Research Ltd (TBR) is a leading UK consultancy providing research, information and advisory services to public and private sector clients. We provide our clients with the evidence they need to make confident, informed decisions.



The TBR Observatory

We are a fully fledged research and strategy consultancy, but we also have an edge. Our TBR Observatory team brings a combination of leading edge analytical skills, data knowledge and TBR's unique longitudinal business database, TCR. They generate insight that is beyond the capability of our competitors.


 All staff at TBR were professional and committed to the project. They had an excellent understanding of the issues involved and the information we were trying to ascertain and use to inform our future actions and decisions. We would certainly recommend them in the future.
