Our analytical engine


creates individual and unique financial models for each company.

Our analytical engine identifies a complete web of interconnections across a company's set of financial statements, making it difficult to hide unwanted disclosures and determining how the company connects to the external world - whether that is the economy, world markets or the company's competitors.

The resulting financial model can be used immediately for your investment analysis and risk assessment, or it can be used to give new insights into the make-up of an investment portfolio. You can even modify the model with your own assumptions to incorporate your own insights and knowledge.
