Capital Markets Advisory Board

Capital Markets Advisory Board

What we do

The Capital Market Advisory Board helps Capital Market trading community professionals make better informed decisions, faster. We do it by connecting them with experienced, expert industry practitioners bringing relevant insight and expertise to their decisions — on-demand, one-on-one, across all business sectors and functions, geographies and asset classes. We do so by providing them with direct access to the best sources of expertise through telephone consultations, in-person meetings, advisory work and other formats. Our global team harnesses relationship capital cultivated across diverse sectors and geographies and leverages proprietary methods and practices in order to deliver unparalleled insights upon receiving a client request.

Who we are

The Advisory Board is a new type of information services firm, operating at the heart of the financial services knowledge economy. Unlike typical research or advisory firms, we don't pretend to have all the knowledge you'll ever need in-house. Instead, we deliver a powerful combination of people to unearth the insight and perspectives you need, when and where you need it.

Our people come from all over the world and are drawn from diverse professional backgrounds in the capital market community. Yet there are many things we have in common - we are focused, results-oriented and passionate about our work. We are highly responsive: we listen carefully to our clients' needs and then do whatever it takes to deliver results that exceed their greatest expectations. Supported by our proprietary methods and practices, we work seamlessly as one team across all time zones, handing client projects across a number of regions. Since our experts have worked extensively at mid and large organization they know what it takes to deliver results in organizations of any size.

From the design of our propriety processes to the way we deliver solutions to our clients, our business is built around the principle of providing our clients with the insight that is most relevant to them, rather than what is most visible or most accessible. Put simply, this is what sets us apart from conventional 'expert networks'.

Capital Markets Advisory Panel is global Information Services Company currently headquartered in New York, with proposed offices and partners in London.
