Private Equity

The Hale Group offers an array of services to firms looking to acquire a new company or evaluate a holding in an existing portfolio.  We assist investors with the due diligence required to identify, evaluate and implement the right growth vehicle(s) for their portfolio. The value we bring to this process is twofold:  our research and analysis capabilities as well as our expertise in strategic development.

The Hale Group’s market research capabilities include large-scale quantitative and qualitative research. Our internal process ensures that we quickly establish the right research strategies and perform an analysis that renders fact-based results. We act quickly and efficiently recognizing that time is of the essence in private equity transactions. We deliver insights, not just data, within a matter of weeks not months.

We have an established track record of providing consumer/customer insights and strategic recommendations. Our main objective is to provide accurate, timely and meaningful information that can inform our client’s decision-making process.
