Furthermore, on a daily basis, our team conducts comprehensive research spanning foreign exchange, commodities, company updates and announcements, changes in analyst ratings, broker calls, institutional valuations and recommendations. This meticulous analysis is aimed at identifying potential stocks that could present lucrative opportunities or exhibit vulnerability in light of these dynamic events.
Every day, we diligently scrutinize macroeconomic developments, encompassing global events from the US, China, and Europe, as well as pertinent domestic news such as GDP, inflation, unemployment rates, retail sales, and more within our own economy. This rigorous analysis helps us pinpoint sectors within the market that stand to gain from or face vulnerabilities due to these factors.
Our strategic choice to scrutinize the top 500 companies by market capitalization is rooted in their exceptional liquidity, extensive coverage by major institutions, and consistent track record. This approach aligns with our commitment to minimizing risk while maximizing potential returns.
Our dedicated team of analysts and researchers diligently track these companies on a daily basis.

Our key fundamental filtering criteria of a company includes:
Understanding the perception of a company within the broader market is crucial. We delve into how major institutions assess and value the companies of interest, as this offers valuable insights into overall market sentiment. By gaining access to the ratings and valuations assigned by these institutions, we gain an unbiased perspective, allowing for a more comprehensive due diligence process. We meticulously monitor day-to-day shifts in valuations, along with upgrades and downgrades from major institutions, curating and delivering this invaluable intelligence to our clients. These shifts can unveil potential opportunities or raise awareness of increased risk associated with stocks held in our clients’ portfolios.
We offer our clients access to valuations and ratings from major institutions of the likes of Goldman Sachs, UBS, Morgan Stanley, Macquarie, Credit Suisse, and Citi Bank. This exclusive wealth of information, not readily accessible elsewhere, equips our clients to make informed decisions rooted in a deep comprehension of the market sentiment.
Valuing a company is a complex endeavor, given the myriad of factors, both tangible and intangible, that can influence its worth. Traditional institutional valuation models, while tried and tested, can sometimes miss the mark due to their inherent limitations. By combining these traditional valuations with our proprietary model, we aim to capture the true essence of a company’s intrinsic value.
While many models focus heavily on established methods like the P/B-ROE Model, Residual Income Model, and Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Model, we have broadened our approach. By embracing a wider spectrum of metrics, we not only improve the precision of our assessments but also enhance their comprehensiveness. This ensures our valuations are not only more accurate but also resilient in the face of changing market dynamics.
Our endeavor goes beyond simply identifying undervalued investment-grade companies in prime sectors. We delve deeper into the world of technical analysis, a crucial discipline that aids in mitigating risk and increasing returns.
By deciphering price action, market structure, and pinpointing areas of value, we unlock the essence of acquiring exceptional companies at precisely the right time that possess a favourable risk to reward ratio. This endeavor, a challenge embraced by both institutional and retail investors, requires deep insights, niche expertise, and decades of charting wisdom. Steering clear of market peaks and skillfully navigating downturns, shields against drastic price drops, minimizing opportunity costs and saving time.
Leaving no stone unturned, we harness the power of our in-house Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning software. Crafted by the brilliance of some of the world’s top programmers, who have crafted algorithms for esteemed hedge funds and institutions, our software stands as a pinnacle of technological advancement. This machine learning marvel empowers us to elevate our decision-making in investment meetings, drawing insights from real-time data streams.
Guided by this software’s acumen, we navigate the labyrinth of possibilities, sieving out low-risk gems while continually assessing the ever-evolving market landscape. Our vigilant investment team receives timely alerts on any stocks within our clients’ portfolios that warrant a closer look due to potential risks. This proactive approach allows us to promptly replace vulnerable positions with promising low-risk opportunities, ensuring your capital remains safeguarded with unwavering diligence.
