Fraser of Allander Institute

Fraser of Allander Institute

The Fraser of Allander Institute is Scotland's leading independent economic research institute with over 40 years of experience in real-world policy analysis.

Since 1975, the Fraser has developed an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of the Scottish economy and is Scotland's expert authority on economic policy issues.

The Fraser is also widely regarded as a leading provider of forecasting, appraisal and economic consultancy services with a diverse client base from across the public, private and third sectors.

The Institute is perhaps best known for The Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, Labour Market Trends and Scotland’s Budget - 2017.


Being aware of key trends and future developments – both nationally and at a sector or local level – is vital to informed planning, investment and strategic decision-making.

The FAI membership helps our clients to become better informed of economic trends and changes in economic policy.

In addition to providing a summary of national economic developments tailored to each organisation, we provide a tailored analysis into key areas of topical economic, financial and business interest as determined by the client. For example, recent discussions have centred upon understanding developments in the North Sea, Brexit, Scotland’s new tax powers and local labour markets.
