High quality investment research is at the epicentre of what Blockchain Analytica’s founders have done for the past three decades. Brian Basham pioneered sponsored equity research with the formation of Equity Development which is arguably the longest standing operator in its field. Chris Wickham’s career largely comprises senior analyst roles within large international investment banks.
Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar’s excellent 2018 book “Cryptoassets – The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond,” highlighted the dearth investment research published by investment banks – still the main providers of equity and fixed income research – for cryptoassets and digital currencies. Our own observation is that the blockchain segment is also under-serviced.
By contrast, in 2018 Equity Development published the pathfinder prospectus for a key blockchain software as a service (SaaS) provider and initiated on Evident Proof Ltd in the aftermath of its fundraising process. Blockchain Analytica co-founder Chris Wickham was the author of both reports.
In our view, a high quality specialist research report should add massively to the success of any fundraising or aftermarket support investor relations programme. In particular, such a report should satisfy a number of the end investor’s due diligence requirements. Moreover, the report can assist in securing one-on-one meetings with investors.
With a demonstrable track record in both investment research and specialist blockchain/crypto/digital product, BlockchainAnalytica is well placed to deliver best in class research output for its clients.
High quality investment research can be vitally supportive to any fundraising activity. Moreover, investment research is at the epicentre of BlockchainAnalytica’s co-founders’ careers in finance most recently through Brian Basham’s ownership of and Chris Wickham’s consultancy into Equity Development.
In particular, Equity Development was a trailblazer in the field of sponsored equity research and is well placed to plug the obvious gap in the market left by investment banks – both large international and small local - who so far have shown minimal commitment to research in Blockchain/Cryptoassets/Digital currencies.
