Data Analytics

Increasingly businesses understand the value inherent in the data they hold and the potential it has to support their strategic and operational decision-making.

Our unique offering combines data science skills with a team with real-world commercial experience, so we understand the bigger picture and the data.

Descriptive Analytics

Descriptive analytics is the interpretation of historical data to better understand what has driven changes in a business. We can consolidate large and complex data sets, combining business data and other sources, to provide an intuitive way to explore and understand the drivers of value and risk in a business. 

We work with sell-side and buy-side teams across the deal lifecycle to maximise value and minimise risk.

Prescriptive Analytics

We develop machine learning-enabled predictive analytics solutions to accurately forecast what will happen based on prior experience. This can be applied across an organisation to optimise decisions and reduce risk in judgemental areas:

  • Minimise churn by identifying customers who may leave and proactively engaging with them
  • Reduce credit risk by understanding the key drivers of default to predict individual customer risk
  • Design cost-effective customer contact strategies by targeting through preferred channels
  • Understand customer behaviour “clusters”
  • Automatically identify unusual transactions or behavior
