Managing Principal & Founder, US based independent research provider



We have been working with Maxim since last 18months. Initially we were taking their services in relatively simple tasks such as data aggregation, comps sheets, inputing historicals etc. However with time they have started supporting us in complex work such as generating trade ideas and providing buy-side support (providing recommendations) on stocks within our portfolio coverage.
