Financial Research Services for Investment Banks

Capability Overview

Aranca provides a wide range of outsourced research and investment banking analytical services to investment banks and advisory firms worldwide. Our services cover multiple sectors and geographies and extend across the deal lifecycle – from origination to closure.

We understand how competitive investment banking is today. In addition to presenting new ideas to clients, senior bankers have to put in significantly greater time on client-facing activities to win mandates. Aranca helps investment bankers improve their productivity, cut costs and focus on these high-value core activities by taking on typical junior analyst functions, maintenance research and providing timely inputs.

Over the past seven years, Aranca has:
  • Worked with 40+ investment banking clients across geographies
  • Assisted investment bankers in 700+ transactions with pitch books, comps analysis and other research
  • Over 2,500 companies covered in 70+ industries

Our highly process driven approach helps us reduce turnaround time while ensuring quality and accuracy of the output. In addition, our flexible engagement models relieve clients of high fixed cost commitments and allow them to quickly scale the level of support depending on the market environment, thereby saving significant costs.
