Our foundations

Now in our 50th year, Wood Mackenzie is synonymous with quality data, analytics and insights that power the natural resources industry.

From humble beginnings as a small Edinburgh-based stockbroker in 1923, Wood Mackenzie became one of the leading stockbrokers in the UK by the 1970s, renowned for its outstanding equity research.

In 1973, the firm published our first oil report, beginning a new era. We first cultivated deep expertise in upstream oil and gas, and now offer the same level of detailed insight for every interconnected sector of the energy, chemicals, metals & mining, and power & renewables industries across the world.

Our growth and expansion

As of February 2023, Wood Mackenzie became a portfolio company of Veritas Capital, a leading investor at the intersection of technology and government. Veritas Capital’s deep sector knowledge and operational expertise assists Wood Mackenzie as we continue to play a critical role in accelerating the global transition to a more sustainable future.

Our partnerships

What if leading organisations in natural resources came together to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems? We believe that together, we can do more. That’s why we support organisations who share our values, and encourage everyone at Wood Mackenzie to get involved.
