WHAT MAKES 13D A UNIQUE AND INVALUABLE GUIDE?

An international team of 25 analysts with the collective experience of over 400 years. We do one thing, and we do it really well—from the welter of information confronting decision makers, 13D discerns, distills, clarifies and highlights.
Relentless fact-checking. 13D is deeply committed to delivering the most accurate, detailed and extensive research possible. As Bernard Baruch once said: “Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts.”
One of the most important tools in today’s world is the ability to listen, to really listen. This means filtering out the noise and the nonsense. We are always astounded how few people know how to do this—they miss so much.
We don’t believe in changing course with every bit of information that floods the markets. This does not mean we are inflexible, but we are not mercurial. We let our tireless commitment to the facts dictate our recommendations, not the headlines, never the consensus. To paraphrase John Maynard Keynes: “When the facts change, I change. What do you do?”
We are life long learners. We are open and receptive to all points of view. Our research is not generated behind closed walls—it’s generated on the streets of cities and towns around the world and in conversations or over dinners with some of today’s most prominent thought leaders. We are always learning. We are also ardent students of history. We read and re-read the lessons of history—they are integral to making sense of the world today.
If you are confused, it is because you are not studying the “Big Picture.” We continually revert to one of the Duke of Wellington’s favorite epigrams: “Study the big maps.” The shorter peoples’ attention span, the more we want to watch the big map. That’s where we will discover new secular trends and contagions.
