Hunting Data was founded because we believe that in today's digital world everyone should have equal access to information: All companies should have market visibility and all interested investors should be able to learn about companies.
Large banks restrict access to information and equity research to privileged groups. The biggest beneficiaries are the largest companies and the largest investors.
With the big banks increasingly focusing on the largest companies, smaller companies struggle for market visibility. Lack of visibility means that investors, media, and the public can't find concise, factual, and valuable information.
Individual investors are increasingly entering the market, the shareholder base has shifted, and the old Wall Street model has shown its age: Focusing coverage on large companies and restricting access to research and information within a small group of investors simply doesn't work anymore.
Hunting Data provides an efficient, digital solution that equally appeals to companies, investors, and the media.
We enhance market visibility and boost investor engagement to level the playing field:
