Federal Financial Analytics is a proprietary think-tank for our clients.  We serve as honest brokers – that is, we review critical federal and global policy developments, analyze them in depth and then advise clients of where new standards will help or hurt them.  We always keep our eye not only on client concerns, but also on the broader policy context.  We tell clients when we think what they want won’t work or, worse, might harm key constituencies.  We aren’t analysts “for hire” – that is, we won’t tell clients what they want to hear or ensure results can be made to appear from studies before methodology is understood and goals are road-tested.  We will, though, undertake rigorous, disciplined analytics to see if what clients want can be made to work for them, within the policy environment and for the financial system.
