Recent projects have included employee mapping for Thomson Reuters, data provision for Fitch Ratings, due diligence advice for Meyer Bergman, investment strategy input for Tesco’s superannuation fund, European market commentary for Europa Capital, expansion planning for Hotel Chocolat and Morrison’s, forecasting for Redevco and site location work for Metro Bank.
