Our six core areas - money, society, politics, economy, nature and technology - act as central scenario drivers. As knowledge or so-called cognitive spaces, they structure our topic map - the mission map. Furthermore, they create links amongst themselves and thus generate a comprehensive picture of the future.Learn more

The USA is extremely divided politically. However, the current polarization has grown historically and can be traced back over many years.
Few events this year will have as great an impact on future world events as the US presidential election in November. A re-election of Donald Trump ("Trump reloaded") would have serious consequences - not only for the USA, but also for the global economy.
The presidential election in the USA in November 2024 is one of the most important events of the current year in several respects. Despite a large number of serious criminal charges, Donald Trump can be expected to be re-elected with a relatively clear probability of well over 50%!
The FERI Trend Radar analyses fundamental developments and long-term trends using validated data to support strategic research processes. Based on an AI/Big Data platform that accesses a data volume of more than 30 million data sets per year, context-relevant data is identified and structured worldwide. This allows for real-time monitoring of short- and long-term trend topics as well as an assessment of the respective trend and trend dynamics. The FERI Trend Radar thus enables a comprehensive penetration of possible future scenarios for the economy and capital markets in an easily understandable way. Read more in our case study.
We primarily focus on the early identification of future-relevant topics. To do this, we use a multidimensional, networked analysis approach that concentrates on the six core areas: money, nature, politics, society, technology and the economy. These so-called cognitive spaces in turn bundle numerous interconnected topics. This has resulted in a topic map that is now richly filled: the "Mission Map" of the FERI Cognitive Finance Institute.
Our six knowledge areas (Money, Economy, Nature, Politics, Society and Technology) act as central scenario drivers. As cognitive spaces, they structure our mission map. They also create connections between the individual areas and thus generate a neural scenario image.
"Cognitive Finance" defines a new method for a holistic understanding of the economy and capital markets. The term is based on the classic theory of cognition, but goes far beyond it: it integrates the latest findings from biology, psychology and neuroscience and addresses the problem of limited human cognitive ability.
