With an extensive team of highly experienced analysts, advanced methodologies and locations around the world, we’re resourced to deliver insight that is valuable, timely and trusted.
Our experts combine high levels of analytical skill with extensive knowledge of, and in many cases first-hand experience in, their specialist industries. They keep their skills and knowledge current through ongoing professional development and regular contact with the business and consumer networks they’ve developed
Our analysts work collaboratively, sharing and cross-checking information and insight across sectors and locations. They’ve developed a culture that fosters innovation and finding new, better ways to operate.
Our analysts apply a range of advanced proprietary modeling tools, data systems and algorithms. Our vast analytical experience covers the full spectrum, including flexible multivariate forecasting models and ‘big data’ manipulation tools that allow us to create and evaluate different scenarios.
We work to a rigorous methodological framework that ensures we take into account the widest possible range of drivers. The framework covers four key areas:
- Political, economic and regulatory environment: drivers in this area we look for include political stability / instability, GDP growth, exchange rate changes, inflation, licensing, regulatory acts, decisions
- Technology: emergence of disruptive technologies, pricing of technologies, availability of technologies
- End-user purchasing criteria: affordability / income distribution, maturity of service, substitute goods
- Competition: number of competitors, competitors’ financial health, competitors’ relative economies of scale etc.
Along with the teams in our 17 main offices across Asia Pacific, EMEA, Latin and North America we have analysts strategically located around the world giving us on-the-ground presence in 80 different markets. It means the insight we deliver will accurately reflect regional differences and the realities of local markets.
