We Productized Our Knowledge in Three Deliverables

A. Knowledge Products

1. Actionable Insights - Our Financial Markets Report is the basis that has the key benefit of backing clients' decisions with critical information, scenarios, and key indicators that link global-macro with micro and sectoral analysis to Personal Finance. Unlike other reports, our knowledge products are actionable and can be used by people in their companies or their personal finance. That is our big primary differentiation factor.

The content is based on what is happening in the markets, what we think, and how we operate. For instance, some insights are:

- We share our pair of eyes on Global-Macro, Regions, and Countries.

- What are the current macro risks that are keeping us awake at night?

- Our reading on what is happening under the radar.

- How we decode market signals.

- What Markets, Commodities, Foreign Exchange (FX), Economic Drivers, Technical Indicators, Stocks, ETFs, Bonds, or Derivatives are our eyes following today?

- Trades that we are following; and, what are our eyes monitoring (closely) these days?

2. Virtual Meetings. Our Financial Markets Reports is also delivered via audio or video conference calls. We also deliver bi-weekly meetings to Clients on market updates with interactive Q&A sessions.

“Actionable knowledge is different from ‘cookie-cutter’ or ‘nice-to-have’ information. One thing is financial entertainment and another thing is actionable financial content.”

B. Training

1. Hands-on Training and Speaking Engagements: we deliver training and courses to cohort groups and we speak at conferences. We do webinars and workshops either online or on-site.
