About us

Investment strategy consulting since 1986

“Les Cahiers Verts de l'ANDESE” was created in 1986. It was then a publication produced in partnership with the Association Nationale des Docteurs en Sciences Economiques (ANDESE, National Association of Doctors in Economics).


The name was later changed to Les Cahiers Verts de l'Economie. From the outset, we have been dedicated to analysing and presenting global, cyclical and structural macroeconomic trends, for a client base of major corporations, corporate heads and investors.


Over many years, we have broadened our activity to include investment strategy consulting on a global scale, covering all asset classes (equities, fixed income, exchange rates, commodities, property, private equity, etc.), as well as training in economics and the financial markets .
