Case Study: How GamblingCompliance gives hedge funds the extra 10 percent

Tuesday, September 25th 2018

The Challenge

Our client is a research analyst at a long/short hedge fund, who specialises in online gambling, gaming equipment suppliers and lottery companies and conducts research into the market prior to the company making any kind of investment. Their job involves making investment decisions about companies working in the sector of coverage, so the broad newsflow that affects them is important to their daily work. However, having to read multiple sources to conduct research, our client found that they were seeing GamblingCompliance articles referenced elsewhere and was getting articles second-hand.

The Solution

Subscribing to GamblingCompliance allows our client to continuously monitor the market and examine the opportunities ahead. Access to the Jurisdictional Reports and Insights & Analysis gives them the insights and market research that they require to understand the market and receive information that might affect stocks in the sector and impact their business.

The Outcome

The real value for the fund, however, is having access to the GamblingCompliance team. “That’s what I’m paying for; being in contact with some individuals at GamblingCompliance, getting additional insight, that really makes it worthwhile … . It gives me the extra 10 percent.”

The client concludes by reiterating how GamblingCompliance supports them with their understanding of the process of regulatory change.

“It’s part of the education,” they say. “Getting the points of view of market participants and connecting the dots.”
