I am pleased to announce that Trevor Boggie and Price Powell, the principals of Corporate Insights, have entered into a definitive agreement to unite their business with Investor Economics. Based in Vancouver, Corporate Insights is a respected market research firm focused on the Canadian financial services industry. Corporate Insights works with wealth management and retail banking organizations on issues related to strategic decision-making, business growth initiatives, sales force management and competitive benchmarking.
Our two firms have a number of clients in common and the specialized nature of the services provided by Corporate Insights represents a natural complement to Investor Economics’ fact-based research. It is the shared belief of Trevor, Price and the senior IE team that the merger of the firms will enhance our ability to provide industry leaders and decision-makers with the informed analysis, competitive intelligence and fact-based insights needed to enable them to better understand, manage and grow their businesses.
In 2013, Investor Economics was acquired by Asset International. The current transaction will result in Corporate Insights becoming a division of Investor Economics, and signals Asset International’s strategic commitment to expand its presence in the Canadian market.
We look forward to telling you more about our expanded capabilities in the coming weeks.
