Client

Advisory department of a renowned European private bank.

OPPORTUNITY

The client wanted deep-dive, fundamental research on Latin American companies to create a product for investors. The onshore team was fully utilized; and the need of the hour was to find a reliable, cost-efficient offshore partner with a high focus on quality.

SOLUTION

Considering the client’s requirements, SG Analytics constituted a team of senior equity research professionals and delivered the following solution to the client:
  • Our team constructed a customized, fundamentally-driven stock screener by taking into consideration the client preferences, and ensured geographical as well as sector diversification.
  • The team shortlisted 25 stocks, initiated coverage on them, and diligently monitored the related sectors and economies to add to the depth and quality of the research. To compensate for lack of research availability. We adopted the EIC (economy-industry-company) approach to independently formulate its arguments, which were backed up by well-researched data.
  • The release timing of results was unpredictable in many cases, and there were linguistic issues (data in English released much later) as well. We ensured that all earnings reports were delivered within 24 hours of their release, irrespective of the release timing.
  • We monitored the performance of its portfolio, reported the findings to the client, and recommended switches to maximize the return on the portfolio, thereby ensuring consistent alpha generation.
