Market Research Data

Whilst researching market data for a Client, I headed to one of my favourite portals namely the corporate banks.

There is a wealth of information and market data available, predominantly compiled as a necessity to manage their risk but of course the glaring obvious is that whilst providing an informed basis for their assessment for our own borrowing,  the data can also highlight opportunity.

I have presented four examples for you below which I trust you find of value, if you’d like more drop me a line.

Charities_Outlook_Q4_11

Manufacturing_Outlook_Q4_11

Transport_and_Logistics_Outlook_Q4_11

Business_Services_Outlook_Q4_11

I do warn you they can be heavy reading if statistical analysis is not your bag but without wanting to be patronising, do take the time to grasp the fundamentals; there is a lot of valuable information to be gleaned that can aid you in your planning and future funding requirements.

Naturally our thanks go to the authors, Barclays Corporate.

Hope it’s going well.

Regards

About Michael Carr

Specialising in Strategy, Systems and Organisational Design I've had a varied and rewarding career and been fortunate to work for some superb companies such as Courtaulds, Unipart International, Akzo Nobel and more recently Jaguar Landrover, all luminaries of a solid, disciplined and a conservative, though never lacking in innovation, approach to business management and development. Augmenting my career with studying for my MBA at Warwick in the early 90's has given me a balanced and I believe rich resource set to draw upon in my Consultancy Practice. My Clients have been good to me, tolerating my idiosyncrasies, giving me enough rope to go along the journey that I was taking them and hopefully in return I've been able to repay them by raising the bar and their business performance, giving them the results and achievements they were looking for. I really enjoy my work and love the challenge - isn't that what it's all about?
