Business Analytics & Research

Enabling clients to access the right information on their business and markets

Looking into a crystal ball isn’t easy, but our team supports companies to assess their existing geographical markets and sectors and identify emerging trends across business, competition, and regulatory landscapes. We are experts at recognising emerging opportunity areas in new geographies and sectors, and undertake a detailed assessment of the market to assist with new market entries.

For those clients looking to expand their business, our team of highly-experienced business intelligence professionals can identify potential targets for acquisition or strategic partnerships to support new market entry, regardless of geography or industry.

We’re skilled in working with Ovum, S&P Capital IQ, Hoovers and Factiva databases, plus other hard-to-access information sources to gather key information about client competitors and suppliers, such as key developments, strategic direction, management changes, financial and competitive strength, and future outlook.

These services are typically provided on a retained basis, although we also work with clients on specific projects depending on requirements.
