Perspective Research

Perspective Research provides a view on Market Strategies/Outlook, Emerging Markets, Economy, Policy and Procedures. Our Perspective Research includes Thematic, Economy and Strategic analysis.

Thematic Research
Inductive or ’connecting the dots’ across economy-wide trends, Edelweiss Thematic Research provides a distinct perspective on a variety of topics. In due course, it helps create a hypothesis on the evolution of trends over a longer period of time.

One of the first to cover private capital markets and profile high growth sectors and companies in India, Edelweiss has helped clients develop an in-depth understanding of these areas by acutely examining industry dynamics and emerging trends; besides showcasing several exciting private companies from various sectors. The ultimate aim has been to identify and trace companies that offer immense potential in their early stage.

Economy & Strategy
Emerging markets are increasingly seen as a distinct asset class for global investors, and the Indian economy's robust growth keeps it under intense and unrelenting spotlight. The country has seen an enviable rate of growth, even by emerging market standards, for about five years now. Having firm macro-fundamentals in place, on top of its openness for foreign capital flows, the global investor interest in India is on the rise.

In this context, our macro-economic research has a two-fold purpose:
Keeping pace with dynamic economic trends - both Indian and International.
Providing an outlook on future trends.

Our macro-economic research also provides a basis for implications of a top-down approach on various sectors. Naturally, this is where our macro-strategy effort comes in, as it aims to build plays from changes in policy as well as economic trends based on the likely sectoral impact.

Corporate Research

Prescriptive Research involves providing insights on a stock or a sector and analyzing financial implications (on a sector or stock) due to factors such as market updates, budgets and other internal/external factors. Our Prescriptive Research includes sector as well as stock specific research.

Sector Research
Sector specific research, as the name suggests, focuses on sectoral insights or issues thereof, such as events that may influence financial prefixes, employment or services, etc. Besides the latest updates and revisions in a particular sector, our research spotlights emerging sectors or aspirants that possess high growth potential.

Stock Research
The foundation of stock research lies in idea origination through a competent bottom-up approach that often throws up potential multi-baggers. We ably use quantitative screens and qualitative mechanisms to identify under-valued, high performing companies from emerging sectors which operate in areas where India has a clear edge over the rest of the world. To add further value, we leverage our close ties with leading corporate entities in India.
