The Middle Market Loans Advantage: The Tools and Data to Source Your Next Deal

Posted by David Diggins on Sep 13, 2018 12:25:09 PM

An effective deal sourcing process is crucial to successful investing. Deal sourcing involves generating leads and managing relationships with intermediaries. Strategies for deal sourcing vary among firms. Some firms prefer to employ specialist teams while others prefer using in-house resources.

Regardless of a firm’s strategy, access to the proper tools and the right data are essential for effective deal sourcing. In March, Mergers & Acquisitions published an article that illustrated this concept with Michael Lewis’ book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. The book details how the Oakland Athletics baseball team successfully used statistics and analytics to their advantage. The same can be done in the world of deal sourcing.

In today's middle market, the focus is always on the next deal. Maintaining and increasing deal flow in this competitive environment is difficult, but using data to find new targets is an easy win for middle market lenders. AdvantageData provides the tools to source and analyze opportunities in the credit market. Download our Restructuring Deal Sourcing PDF to learn more.
