Bank of Ireland and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) have announced that they are partnering on new monthly research, the Bank of Ireland Savings and Investment Index. The Index, which launches in the coming weeks, will delve into how consumers view the savings environment and their sentiment towards saving in the future. On the investments front, the Index will uncover where people are investing their money, how they feel about the amount they invest and whether they think it’s a good or bad time to invest.
The indices will be made available at http://www.esri.ie/savings-and-investment-index/ on a monthly basis.
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
