Market Intelligence & Analysis

"Over the past several years, Mike Ginsberg has been a speaker at our Annual Conferences and his information has been informative and current and our members consider him to be a great source of insight regarding our industry. Our attendee surveys show Mike to be highly regarded as a speaker and his content is always rated high. I believe that the best recommendation that we, as a unit, can give him is that he will be invited back!"

Investors and industry players alike rely on Kaulkin Ginsberg’s custom research capabilities to help shape and support their strategic business decisions. Confidential projects have included:

Acquisition due diligence

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.

"Dahlink Financial’s credit card asset class took several years to fully develop. I was reminded of that fact after reading your “Rome wasn’t built overnight” comment in the DBA article. I don’t know if you wrote those articles with the intention of fostering hope within the debt buying community but you sure made me feel a lot better."
