HdL Companies Grows Partnership with Beacon Economics

(November 20, 2020) — HdL Companies, a leading provider of revenue enhancement technology and consulting services for local governments, is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with Beacon Economics, one of the nation’s most respected economic research firms. Since 2012, the two firms have collaborated on providing economic and revenue forecasting services for local governments in California. The partnership between HdL and Beacon Economics is now expanding to provide forecasting services for Texas jurisdictions.  

“Beacon’s partnership with HdL Companies leverages the unique expertise of each firm, significantly enhancing the range, richness, depth, and ultimately, the usefulness, of the outlooks we produce for clients,” said Adam Fowler, Research Director of Beacon Economics. “Our long track record of accurately forecasting major drivers of the economy, synchronizes with HdL’s specialized tax forecasting to deliver a deeper and more valuable perspective about the macroeconomy as a whole – and about key sectors.”

HdL and Beacon Economics collaborate on HdL’s quarterly Consensus Forecast publication which provides information on key drivers impacting local economies. The forecast is used to help project revenues based on statewide formulas and for reference in tailoring sales tax estimates appropriate to each client’s specific demographics, tax base and regional trends.

“This is an exciting time for HdL Companies and Beacon Economics as we continue to grow our partnership,” said HdL Companies’ President/CEO Andy Nickerson. “The collaboration and sharing of information between Beacon and HdL enhances the accuracy of the work that each company performs for their respective clients.”
