Market intelligence helps us understand what each player in a vast and complex network of different funding institutions looks for – and is best at. And we’re always mindful of the needs, attitudes and core values of the people within the related professional services firms.

The group has representatives in over 150 jurisdictions and is the world’s largest vetted network of leading firms.
