The Economist Intelligence Unit is the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, the sister company to The Economist magazine. On The Economist Intelligence Unit platform, Rutgers subscribes to two series of country reports: Country Commerce and Financial Services Report.

Country Commerce is a practical reference guide to the specific operating conditions, commercial laws, and business regulations in 55 countries. It offers unbiased guidance on critical issues such as obtaining proper permits and registrations, protecting your intellectual property, and complying with local tax laws. Country Commerce reports are updated annually.

Financial Services Report is a comprehensive guide, updated twice a year, to changes in financial services, operating conditions, regulations, and monetary policy in the world's 62 principal financial markets. Sectors covered in each report include banks; insurers; asset managers; and markets for stocks, bonds, currencies, and derivatives.

Rutgers' subscription also includes access to two discontinued report series dating from earlier years: Country Monitor and Country Finance. Rutgers also has access to The Economist Intelligence Unit's special reports, webinars, and Global Forecasting Service. Rutgers does not have access to any other reports or products on this platform.
