Political developments in context


We primarily deliver our insights through short research notes with key conclusions summarized up front. We also provide sector primers that explain basics to new analysts and investors as well as an in-depth series on election implications for stocks and markets. Our written products – averaging twenty per week – are accessible via e-mail, our website portal, S&P Capital IQ, and Bloomberg (wire POL/function CALP).

Conference Calls:

Weekly calls – including the regular Thursday Spotlight series (11AM ET) – highlight topical issues that we believe are important for investors to consider. Hosted by either individual Capital Alpha analysts or the entire team, our calls often feature guest speakers and average 90 per year.

Special Events:

We host Washington, DC field trips, conferences, and small group luncheons and dinners to gather together policy makers, opinion shapers, legal experts, and investors for informed discussions.

Individual & Bespoke:

Our analysts conduct face-to-face meetings with clients in North America and Europe, readily engage via phone and email for 1:1 questions, and produce substantive custom analysis upon client inquiry.


The Monday Capital Alpha Outlook, analyzing investment-relevant political matters for the week ahead, is a portfolio manager favorite. A close second is our Trending Ten list of the hottest policy issues facing investors. On Fridays, subscribers receive our DC Catalysts series, highlighting upcoming events on our radar. Finally, This Week’s Political Insight is an at-a-glance, hyperlinked summary of that week’s publications.
