TBR - a leading economic research and strategy consultancy

Trends Business Research Ltd (TBR) is a leading UK consultancy providing research, information and advisory services to public and private sector clients. We provide our clients with the evidence they need to make confident, informed decisions.



The TBR Observatory

We are a fully fledged research and strategy consultancy, but we also have an edge. Our TBR Observatory team brings a combination of leading edge analytical skills, data knowledge and TBR's unique longitudinal business database, TCR. They generate insight that is beyond the capability of our competitors.


 TBR has conducted a range of projects for Scottish Enterprise, from £30,000 to well over £100,000. These projects have been associated with TBR's skills in the analysis of data and the drawing of conclusions from them. One of Scotland's most significant economic development initiatives flowed from original research conducted by TBR. They have also contributed to the development of our Global Companies Enquiry, providing accurate analysis of the activities of Scottish owned global companies.
