Corporate partner Dee Sian and associate David Strong acted for international growth capital investor Beringea LLP on its equity investment in CognoLink, a leading primary research firm. CognoLink specialises in providing expert network services, facilitating consultations between its clients and industry specialists who can deliver vital insights to support key investment decisions. The investment will be used to accelerate the company’s international expansion and to further develop new streams of business, with a focus on delivering innovative primary research solutions to investors.
Commenting on the deal, Stuart Veale said “The use of expert networks and primary research to support investment decisions only started in the 1990’s but has now become embedded in the research processes of asset managers and consultancy firms, with a total market size this year approaching $500 million. CognoLink has established itself as one of the leading players in the sector and is very well positioned to continue its exceptional rate of expansion, supported by this investment from Beringea. I am looking forward to working with CognoLink’s management team during this exciting period”.
