AIM EQUITY RESEARCH

Our independent research targets going public SMEs and AIM Italia listed companies interested in expanding financing channels and potential investors.

Our analysis allows to make informed investment decisions for the benefit of financial market liquidity and the understanding of the issuer’s business model.

MARKET INTELLIGENCE

We offer Investor Perception Study to understand market sentiment on the listed company (management, strategy, price, positioning financial and economic performance) which is the basis of a qualified Investor Relations strategy.

Market intelligence activities also allow to monitor the main Italian and foreign listed comparables for a company valuation in terms of market multiples.
