This complex method involves analyzing various parameters of financial operation and then deriving meaningful data from them. These include assessing expenditures or forecasting a budget. We can spare you the cost of spending on skilled staff and the technology necessary to carry out financial modeling. 2. DCF (Discounted cash flow) analysis Discounted cash flow analysis is a popular method used for generating value in a future investment– an asset, project or another company. Future expenditures are estimated and they are ‘discounted’ to arrive at the present rates of these expenditures. DCF analysis is particularly useful in financial research because they provide with a way of gauging how much investment needs to go into valuing a particular asset, project or a company. 3. IPO (Initial public offering) analysis IPO analysis is carried out to analyze the movement of various stocks in a financial market.

  10. 10. Business Research Services Business research is a potent tool for any organization. If you are a small business, business market research can shed light on where to invest and where to cut costs. Unlike market research, business research focuses on your competitors, their products, services, strategies etc. These two research methods can help any business to strategize based on numbers and not just by intuition. Business research services can help you: • Uncover your competitors for a particular offering • Analyze their sales / marketing strategies • Show growth trends and forecasts for a particular product / service • Estimate the market size through competitive analysis • Find new business opportunities where competition is less or non-existent Small businesses need business competitive analysis and research as it will help to zero-in on tactics to promote their products and services. Unlike research conducted by large firms, business research can be a cost effective investment to chart a growth path for your company. Conducting a business management research requires meticulous planning, execution and reporting. Global FPO has been providing business research for small businesses around the world and has extensive experience in methods that bring in valuable information back to you. Here’s a list of the business research services that we provide: 1. Business competitive analysis: Competitive analysis can provide you with intelligence on who are your competitors, their customers, economic health, demographic information and product related information. You can use this information to get ahead of your competitors 2. Business market research: Market research is the basis of any organization. It can give you information on your target market, customers, market size, similar products and their growth and other similar factors. Based on the outcome of the market research you can make changes on how to package your product / service and decide on the strategies needed to take it to the market Research Process at Global FPO Here’s a summary of the process that is being followed for our business research services: 1. Research goals: The first step of the research process is to finalize the goals of the research project. All subsequent activities follow the goal(s) and are planned for, accordingly
  11. 11. 2. Creating the research plan: A detailed research plan is drawn, which comprises of the target audience for the research, and the tools needed. The research plan varies with each research project 3. Information collection: Information is collected from the target audience through means such as questionnaires, e-mails, online surveys, online focus groups and field surveys. The collected information is stored in a database which is further used for analysis 4. Analyze the information: The collected information is then subjected to statistical analyses such as Regression analysis, ANOVA, Cross tabulation etc. This provides findings into various relationships in the collected data 5. Reporting: The final stage of the research process involves presenting the information in graphs, charts and self-explanatory tables. These are intended to help the end-user of the research report to assimilate the findings of the research project easily
  12. 12. Investment Research Services Investment Research can be defined very broadly as a process that contains one or more of the following: • The results of research into a designated investment or its issuer • Analysis of factors likely to influence the future performance of a designated investment or its issuer; and • Advice or recommendations based on those results and that analysis. Investment Research is useful to: • Individual investors • High Net worth Individuals (HNI) • Asset management companies • Companies • Economic Analysts Process of Investment Research Investment research involves fundamental analysis, technical analysis, or a combination of the two. Fundamental analysis essentially explains what to buy while technical analysis could be used to decide on when to buy. • Fundamental Analysis Fundamental analysis begins with the assertion that the 'true' or 'intrinsic' value of any financial asset equals the present value of all cash flows that the owner of the asset expects to receive. Accordingly the fundamental stock analyst attempts to forecast the timing and size of these cash flows and then converts them into equivalent present value by using an appropriate discount rate. Once the true value of the asset is determined, it is compared with the current market price of the asset in order to see whether the asset is fairly priced. Those assets whose price is above the intrinsic value are said to be 'over valued' and those whose prices are lower than the intrinsic value are 'under valued'. The magnitude of the difference between the current market value and 'true value' is also important information, because the strength of the research conviction that whether a given asset is incorrectly priced will partly depend on this information. To determine the intrinsic value, the financial statements of a company are extensively analyzed. Other factors such as its credit rating, business model, competitor parity of the company are also thoroughly scrutinized. • Technical Analysis Technical analysis involves the study of stock market prices of the financial asset under consideration, in an attempt to predict the future price movements it may take.
  13. 13. Initially, past prices are examined in order to identify recurring trends or patterns in price movements. Then more recent prices are analyzed in order to identify emerging trends or patterns that are similar to past ones. This analysis is done in the belief that these trends or patterns repeat themselves. Thus by identifying an emerging trend or pattern, the analyst hopes to accurately predict future price movements for that particular asset. • Combination Technique As can be seen, neither of the two methods is comprehensive. A synthesis of the two would be deal rather than any one, giving the investor information on what to buy and when to buy it. Apart from these two broad based techniques there are other techniques like passive investing which involves investing in index stocks or funds based on an active index.
  14. 14. Credit Research Services The importance of credit research in financial decision making has always been of paramount priority. In the recent times, credit research has grown in importance owing to the various events taking place across the financial world. Credit research lets users establish: • Key factors about an issuer's creditworthiness • Credit rating of holdings • Distinction between different risk exposures for new and existing deals • Understanding of analysts’ interpretation of significant political, regulatory, and environmental events and their impact economically From international corporations to financial institutions, from utilities and sovereigns to insurance companies, Global FPO’s credit research services aims to help your company achieve all the above goals and much more.
