Valuation and identification of growth opportunities

We conduct prospective research to identify sectors of economic activity with significant growth opportunities. We analyze factors such as demand booms, transactions involving ownership changes, dilution or concentration, and opportunities deriving from changes in regulation or foreign trade. This approach is highly useful to support strategic decisions by investment banks, mutual funds and pension funds. We also produce financial analysis and valuation studies to support investment decisions by institutional investors, such as foundations and pension funds.
