The Client

The client is a well-known edge fund organization, based in the US.

The Project

They client needed a research and development partner for data development in order to better formulate their trading and investment strategies. The partner would be required to analyze the data and generate descriptive data, ratios and statistics. The partner would also standardize financial data to simplify the search for investment opportunities as per their criteria. This work had to be completed in a short time span.

The Challenges

Data points are the main information that is created according to certain time frames and strictures. For creating a high quality research outline, they are the most important factor.

The client was looking for data points on 50 leading energy-based firms in the US along with data research. This would include designing a format in mutual accord with the client, a ratio analysis on this template and assembling quarterly data on the last five years. The client had also asked for collating relevant analysts’ estimates with an analysis of pension and currency.

Financial data is the parameter by which companies gauge and manage their success. To the outsiders, this data represents the strength and standing of a business. Hence, the challenge for us lay in addressing these two diverse groups with their different viewpoints.
