Big data for the boardroom
Pottinger's team members have been involved in the development of cutting edge techniques to support board decision-making in relation to group strategy, business valuation, risk management and capital optimisation for some 25 years. This includes the development of some of the first DCF models designed specifically for financial institutions and infrastructure companies, as well as being a founder member of McKinsey's risk management practice.
If we have data, let’s look at data. If all we have are opinions, let’s go with mine.

Over the last decade, Pottinger has developed the next generation of analysis and decision-making tools, by combining leading edge statistical analysis with a deep understanding of the commercial drivers of business success and market perspectives on valuation. These techniques allow boards to see through all the short term noise and make decisions which will increase value, reduce risk, and stand the test of time. Below we share a number of articles which provide an insight into how we apply big data style statistical analysis to boardroom decisions.
