Industry Research

World-Class Research Skills

Summit Ridge Group professionals have world-class financial research expertise, experience on both the sell-side and the buy-side, and have won numerous prestigious awards for their research skills. These awards include the multiple Institutional Investor “All American” rankings, a #1 ranking by the Greenwich Poll of institutional investors and the Wall Street Journal’s “Best on the Street” rankings. These research awards are a testament to our ability to understand the perspective of institutional investors and their expectations from third-party research providers.

Summit Ridge Group also brings diverse functional perspectives – from M&A to capital markets – and deep industry expertise in the telecom, media, and satellite sectors to projects. This unique multi-layered approach is rarely found within consulting firms of any size and yields optimal results for our clients. To ensure consistent top-quality services, we only work on projects where clients are seeking significant insights and when we can add material value within our core areas of expertise.

Deep Industry Knowledge

Our deep industry knowledge allows us to quickly get up to speed and provide cutting-edge insights. As we are also well-connected to other participants in the industry – at all levels and functions. As such, we are able, as legally and ethically appropriate, to find industry experts to informally answer remaining industry questions we might need to resolve in order to deliver a first-class product to our clients.

Broad Functional Skills

In addition to possessing a deep understanding of the communications industry and expert research skills, Summit Ridge Group professionals have a broad background in investment banking, consulting, and regulatory issues. This broad skill set enables us to analyze information from a variety of sources and perspectives typically not available in a single firm.

Capital Market Expertise

Our experience working with leading public market investors at top investment banks gives us a sophisticated understanding of capital markets issues, as well as insight into the assessment institutional investors, are likely to have on a particular situation. We are able to incorporate these perspectives into our custom research to create a truly differentiated service.

Scalable Projects

We are available for projects ranging from a phone consultation billed on an hourly basis to a detailed report and presentation to the client’s board of directors. Please contact us to discuss how we can meet your custom research needs. To arrange a phone call on an hourly basis, please contact your Gerson Lehrman Group representative.
