Establishing an IP Investment Index
Can intellectual property serve as a matrix for smart investment decisions?
A major investment bank was eager to embrace the concept of IP in its investment decisions. In particular, it was keen to get a novel perspective on the technology potential of emerging markets.
We developed an IP based investment index that provided the Bank with a toolkit to determine the innovation capabilities of emerging markets.
This bank had so far not used IP as a means to inform its investment positions. By marrying the concept of IP with financial considerations OxFirst was one of the 1st firms to provide IP based insights on technology that would have otherwise not been at its disposal.
