Caliber Corporate Advisers, a financial services and fintech communications firm, announced the launch of its new consultancy division, Caliber Intelligence. This launch coincides with the appointment of leading fintech analyst, Lindsay Davis, as Director of Intelligence.
Caliber Intelligence provides consultative services, helping fintech companies, financial services firms, venture capital funds, and investors turn data and insights into action. Companies engage Caliber Intelligence on a retainer or project basis with custom reporting. Areas of focus for the division include:
- Market capabilities analysis
- Customer profile discovery
- Product roadmap advisory
- Growth and customer acquisition strategies
- Key performance indicator development
Caliber Intelligence is led by noteworthy fintech analyst, Lindsay Davis. Over the course of her career, Davis has built and scaled market research on emerging technology trends in the financial services and fintech ecosystem, most recently serving as a Senior Intelligence Analyst at CB Insights. Davis advises founders and C-suite executives on the competitive landscape, go-to-market strategies, and product roadmap prioritization, while also working with venture capital firms and strategic investors on due diligence for investments, mergers and acquisitions.
As Director of Intelligence, Davis will be publishing independent industry studies and analysis on an ongoing basis. The first study is an evergreen report focused on founders navigating the pandemic brought on by COVID-19 which is set to publish in Q3 2020.
“Fintech was born in a crisis and the current crisis exemplifies what fintech was built to do,” said Davis. “The pandemic has also exposed the legacy architecture that is holding the industry back. Our hypothesis, and the driving force behind Caliber Intelligence, is turning data into actionable strategies is a vital resource that the industry needs to build the next generation of fintech.”
Caliber Corporate Advisers has experienced significant growth over the past few years, most recently rounding out its leadership team with the appointment of fintech PR pro, Jacqueline Silva, as Managing Director. In May, the company announced the launch of Spotlight, a marketing and communications solution for early and growth-stage fintechs. Caliber was listed among the top 20 financial PR firms by O’Dwyers and has been included in the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
“Companies hire Caliber because of our expertise in fintech and financial services. Being able to serve our clients with fintech and financial services insights and intelligence is another way for us to add value,” said Harvey Hudes, Founder & CEO of Caliber Corporate Advisers. “We’ve known and respected Lindsay’s work, and are extremely fortunate to have her lead this business at a pivotal time in the industry. We knew that having her on board was a natural next step for the growth of Caliber.”
