Competitor Analysis & Market Intelligence
Competitor Analysis

Ariadne Search offers one of the most comprehensive competitor analysis services to its sell-side clients.  Of equal benefit to equity research management and to human resource departments, this is a thorough quantitative analysis of equity research personnel at the leading sell-side institutions.  This proprietary dataset covers a number of areas, including but not limited to:

  • Headcount (absolute & change)

    • overall​

    • by company

    • by sector

  • Gender Diversity (absolute & change)

    • overall

    • by company

    • by sector​

  • Levels of staff turnover

  • ​​​​​Experience levels / seniority

  • Outflow to the buy-side, corporates, other finance, etc.

  • Intake from buy-side, corporates, other finance, accountancy, etc.

  • Redundancy programs

  • Graduate intake

The data is updated on an "as-it-happens" basis, allowing clients to have an up-to-date understanding of how their department compares to that of their peers.  It is presented in the form of impactful charts which can be used for a variety of purposes, both internally (e.g. to reinforce a request for headcount or to retain staff) and externally (e.g. to assist in negotiation with clients).

The charts can be purchased on a quarterly subscription basis.  In addition, bespoke data analysis can be carried out.  In both cases, the price can be rebated against executive search fees.

Please contact us to arrange a face-to-face demonstration.

We also provide our clients with timely market intelligence on competing firms.  For example, significant hires or departures, compensation levels (expected and actual), changes in strategy, etc.
