Financial Intelligence Requires a Deeper Look
New York, NY – Arising Group, Inc. recently completed intensive exercises in financial analysis with Tim Powell of The Knowledge Agency® (TKA).
George Karshner, Executive Vice President at Arising Group, said that understanding the financial fitness of a company is essential to proper due diligence. “Companies targeted for M&A or involved in litigation may not want to reveal their true financial condition,” Karshner said. “A company’s public relations team may put on a happy face, but to know the true health of a company you need to look at their public filings and financial statements and understand the implications of the different business ratios,” he added.
“The TKA Financial Intelligence Clinic opened a new world for our engineers who regularly design and implement tools for financial data, but who had little knowledge of how to find and interpret financial intelligence. Our entire team was inspired.”
Arising Group has provided software and services to the financial industry for more than a decade. Their clients include banks, brokerage firms, CPAs, and independent fair valuators for hedge funds. They understand that business success calls for the ability to survey the competitive landscape, forecast probable events, and set up early warning systems—and that these competitive intelligence tools are built upon an understanding of the numbers.
