A guaranty agency was considering the acquisition of a service provider in the student loan sector. We conducted market research and returned an intelligence analysis of the market’s size, segmentation, competition, and forecasts.

Industry assessment

A private equity group was considering an investment in a specific market sector. We conducted background and primary-source research on this part of the industry, helping the firm’s partners make equity investment decisions.

Sector analyses

MasterCard hired Kaulkin Ginsberg to conduct an industry assessment of the early-out financial services collection market. We provided an intelligence analysis of companies competing in this space, and measured the market’s overall size and growth potential.

Competitive analyses

For Sallie Mae, we conducted a study of how their manager-level compensation packages compared to competitors in the ARM industry. Because of our solid reputation for preserving confidentiality, prominent collection agencies contributed highly sensitive information about the base salaries, bonuses, benefits, and perks of their mid-and senior-level managers. Benchmarks were defined and returned to all participating companies.
