What is Ned Davis Research?

Ned Davis Research keeps investors on the right side of market moves through a proven, objective, evidence-based approach. In 1980, Ned Davis founded NDR based on the fundamental belief that making money was more important than being right driven. He brought this belief to reality through a 360 degree approach which combines macro, fundamental, sentiment and technical analysis. 

Today we are widely recognized for concise global commentary, unbiased multi-asset class views, model building and interactive tools & charts. Ned Davis Research is headquartered in Venice, Florida, with offices in Atlanta, Boston, London, Hong Kong, and San Francisco.
