Born and educated in London, Pinchas Landau has been living in Israel since 1976 and is one of the country’s leading independent analysts and commentators on Israeli economic and financial affairs. Prior to establishing an independent consultancy in 1997, he was for many years one of Israel’s most prominent financial journalists. Today, his original and insightful analyses on global developments, especially on the spreading economic and financial crisis, are available in written reports, as lectures and presentations and via private consultations. In 1996, Pinchas launched The Landau Report, a newsletter and consultancy service addressing the needs of foreign firms and financial institutions active in Israel and the Middle East. Its unique format examines the trends underlying all the key areas of relevance to people and institutions with investments or business in Israel, including Regional Developments, Domestic Politics, Macro-Economics, Corporate Affairs, and Financial Markets.
