Here is how Squirro helps Investment Bankers in Debt Capital Markets & Equity Capital Markets as well as M&A succeed:

1. AI-Supported Deal Origination

Squirro’s Investment Banking Application for Debt Capital Markets (DCM) and Equity Capital Markets (ECM) supports the Deal Origination Process by automatically detecting relevant catalysts in both internal and external data through the application of AI and Machine Learning. Using pre-trained models, Squirro is able to detect events such as: companies outlining plans to raise capital (equity or debt), companies exploring IPO’s, expansion plans, management changes, or capital structure changes.
The deals are automatically presented to the Investment Bankers in a comprehensive holistic view either as a standalone solution or directly integrated within a core banking or CRM System.

2. Counterparty Recommendations

Once a mandate is won, Squirro helps to identify potential investors. Squirro creates a unique profile for the current deal and matches it with potential investor profiles that are based on past activities, forward looking statements, and the detection of other relevant signals within all of the available data. The result is a recommendation of the investors that most likely to be interested in the deal.

3. Client Cockpits

By unifying siloed data from old pitchbooks, earning call transcripts, premium data sources, and many others, Squirro offers a holistic view of clients and the markets they operate in as an integration within your CRM System.
