Professor Trevor Williams
Trevor Williams is the former Chief Economist at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, a position he held for well over 10 years. During this time he established a highly-regarded, award-winning, team of economists analysing global and domestic data to support clients ranging from financial institutions, large corporates to SMEs with bespoke insight.
He is a visiting Professor at the University of Derby, rotating Chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs Shadow Monetary Policy Committee (SMPC) and author of Trading Economics: A Guide to Economic Statistics for Practitioners (with Victoria Turton).
Trevor also lectures at CASS business school and Cardiff University. He is on the editorial board of Economia and the Journal of Corporate Treasury Management. He previously lectured in Economics and Business Statistics, before working in the UK Government Economic Service (GES). He sits on various charities, including as Patron of Reach Society, Chairman of Ballet Black, and Through the Looking Glass.
He regularly writes articles for publications, such as Moneyfacts, Clear Path Analysis, and Economia to name a few. He appears in the financial press and on television to discuss and comment on economic issues.
Trevor now runs a consultancy which specialises in economic analysis encompassing ‘big data’ – the large information set being created from the 4th industrial revolution sweeping the world – to better understand a fast changing global economy, and its political context: i.e. its political economy.
Trevor is a well-known and highly-regarded speaker at many domestic UK and international business forums. He talks on a range of topics, including:
- International trade
- Economic forecasting
- Financial markets
- Trends in global financial markets
- The future of the world economy
- Industrial trends, and
He has written and spoken extensively on how ‘big data’ can be used to analyse trends in macro-economic individual company performance and why and how the dramatic changes taking place in global financial markets are entirely understandable and predictable, even after the Great Financial Crisis. From this awareness, flows strategy and insight into the micro and macro-economic consequences of the evolution of the world economy for businesses and governments. What do some of these trends – some long, some short – mean for pensions, insurance, property markets, house builders, retailers or manufacturers?

Latest figures show that UK productivity fell back in Q1 to the levels previously seen prior to the financial crisis in 2008. Quite frankly, it’s shocking to see that productivity hasn’t grown at all in almost a decade, and that we’re actually producing a bit less now per hour than we did then. The broad …
