Wood Mackenzie started life in 1923 as a small, relatively unknown, Edinburgh-based stockbroker. By the 1970s, the company had become one of the top three stockbrokers in the UK, renowned for the quality of its equity research.
Their success has always been underpinned by the clear and simple principle of providing trusted research and advice that would make a difference to customers. This was true when the first oil report was published by their equity analysts in 1973, and remains just as relevant to us today.
Over the past four decades, Wood Mackenzie have drawn upon their heritage to create a global research and consultancy business that has grown alongside the needs of its customers.
Having cultivated deep expertise in upstream oil and gas, the company carefully broadened their focus to deliver the same level of detailed insight for every interconnected sector of the energy, chemicals, metals and mining industries they now serve around the world.
Today Wood Mackenzie are part of the Verisk family which has broadened their data and analytics platform and strengthened their ability to provide intelligence that helps drive growth and serve thousands of industry market leaders.
