Verbatim Is Co-Presenter at 2012 Investorside Conference

NEW YORK, NY - April 3, 2012 - Verbatim Advisory Group and Gerson Lehrman Group are the presenters of case studies at the 11th Investorside Independents’ Day conference at the Bloomberg Building.  This is the largest known annual gathering of independent research providers (IRP).  In addition to IRP members, attendees include portfolio managers, directors of research, analysts, and members of the press. 

Verbatim's case study is entitled "Instant Gratification - The Race For Gamblers, Dealhunters, and Fanatics."  To satisfy consumers, companies are forced to change their technology and business models at ever-faster rates.  Buyers expect the best deals now, movie fans expect immediate delivery, and gamblers gravitate to the newest games.  Adapting to a market where patience is scarce and convenience prized, companies make almost-daily changes to their policies and products: Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Groupon, Konami, and Netflix.  Keeping up with these companies' prospects is important for institutional investors, but becomes difficult when situation are so fluid. 

The case study looks at how Verbatim tracked the developments of each company, ahead of general market perceptions.
