Make better investment decisions across the global energy, US energy, and metals and mining industries. We deliver proprietary, region-specific research packages relevant to your business and offer flexibility to customise the analysis to meet your needs.


We live in a global economy that requires astute macroeconomic and geopolitical awareness in the midst of continuous change. Within this vast economy, the lower-for-longer oil market has created leaner corporate teams — and also opened the door to more investment opportunities. For the first time in decades, you're in a buyers' market. But with fewer resources and more data than ever before, how do you cut through the noise?

Many investors will spread themselves thin sorting through the available data while valuable hours tick away. But others will simply extend their reach — without adding head count, and without wasting time on irrelevant information. For the highest returns, you need the deepest insights. With access to a steady stream of objective research tailored to your interests — and to the individual analysts driving it — investment decisions become clearer, faster. That's where Wood Mackenzie's Institutional Investor Service comes in.

What is the Institutional Investor Service?

The Institutional Investor Service (IIS) works as an extension of your team across all energy, chemicals and mined commodity markets and throughout the entire value chain. With access to a steady stream of objective independent research, and to the individual analysts driving it, investment decisions become clearer and easier to make.
