The research, analytics, and advisory firm aims to leverage its services and help its clients obtain insights that matter
New Delhi: Data is often touted as the new oil. But like crude, if unrefined, data is of no value until it is processed and analyzed. To quote Peter Sondergaard – Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine. Companies around the world rely on the insights derived from data to make important business decisions.
Avalon Global Research (AGR) is a globally renowned company that helps its clients make million-dollar decisions with extensive research and analytics. Following the 30-year knowledge legacy of the Avalon Group, AGR is taking its services up a notch by acquiring ValueNotes Strategic Intelligence.
Based in Pune, ValueNotes is a name to be reckoned with in the global research and analytics sector. The company has carved itself a niche by helping its clients with continuous tracking research, giving them valuable insights all year long.

By combining its expertise and experience with ValueNotes, AGR will be able to add continuous tracking research under its umbrella of services, helping its clients obtain relevant, updated, customized, and data-driven knowledge on an ongoing basis.
Rishikesh Deshpande, the CEO and Co-founder of AGR, believes that the acquisition will help AGR scale itself and attain the goal of revenue maximization. He says, “The last financial year proved to be transformative in many respects for our company, despite multiple market challenges. The successful acquisition of ValueNotes marks a new phase in our growth strategy.
