Japan Macro Advisors (JMA), whose clients include a few of the world’s largest hedge funds and global manufacturing companies, has launched "My Charts," a set of web-based analytical tools to help economists and decision makers stay on top of the Japanese economy.
Building upon the free and constantly updated economic database JMA provides to the public, My Charts functions as a personal chartbook that is east to maintain and can be converted instantly to PowerPoint slides.
"Economists and analysts such as myself spend too much time not analyzing, but searching and downloading data, updating charts and tables, copy-pasting them to presentation slides. Our tools will free up valuable time, letting us spend more time actually thinking about the economy," says Takuji Okubo, founder and chief economist at JMA.
Since JMA was founded four years ago, the firm has strived to provide a comprehensive macroeconomic database on Japan freely accessible to anyone. The database currently includes over 500 indicators, some of them uniquely compiled by JMA. The new "My Charts" tool will simplify access to Japan's economic data. "My Charts" can be used as a personalised chart book, printable and exportable to PowerPoint slides with just one click.
