Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Competitive Analysis Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Competitive Analysis talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Competitive Analysis professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Competitive Analysis talent and are able to provide clients with Competitive Analysis professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Competitive Analysis professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Competitive Analysis consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Competitive Analysis consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Competitive Analysis talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Competitive Analysis talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Competitive Analysis consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Competitive Analysis

What is Competitive Analysis?

Competitive analysis is a technique that examines the strengths and weaknesses of competitors in order to identify opportunities for improvement and possible new market segments. In other words, it’s a way for you to learn from your competition’s failures.

One of the main reasons for doing a competitive analysis is so that you can figure out which markets or industries you want to enter. A competitive analysis should highlight what the competition is up to and how they are coming up with new products and services.


A competitive analysis should also summarize what your strategy will be in order to compete as well as getting feedback from industry experts on how you can be more successful. This article will cover all of these things, telling you what exactly a competitive analysis entails and giving tips on how it can help improve your businesses success.

If you’re a business owner, or if you aspire to be one, a competitive analysis is something which is essential for your long-term success.

A competitive analysis of your business takes a look at what your competitors are doing and then compares their strategy with yours. It will examine their strengths and weaknesses, the trends in your industry that they are capitalizing on, and how they service their customers. Ultimately, the intention of a competitive analysis is to position oneself favorably against his or her competitors by determining how to capitalize on their weaknesses and take advantage of any opportunities that may arise due to changes in the marketplace.

A competitive analysis is a proactive tool and should not be viewed as a means for your company to sit back and wait for the competition to take action. It’s a way of anticipating potential competitors’ moves, taking note of what they are doing correctly and what they are doing incorrectly, then formulating your own strategy so that you can compete effectively while keeping a close eye on the competition.

Having an effective competitive analysis in place allows businesses to remain proactive in their marketing efforts, reduce expenditures, improve sales, increase profits and ultimately increase their chances of success. There are several different forms of competitive analyses that can be implemented so as to determine how to best position yourself against your competitors and meet business goals.

Businesses can benefit greatly from a competitive analysis by using their findings to create a marketing strategy. By determining who the company’s competitors are, what they are doing and with what level of success, then the business owner can use this information to come up with the best plan for his or her specific industry and business.

Another useful aspect of a competitive analysis for businesses is recognizing potential opportunities which may arise due to changes in the marketplace and changes in consumer tastes. Once you have analyzed your competition, you will also be able to anticipate any potential trends or changes which could open doors for your product or service as well as those which could potentially close them.

Finally a competitive analysis can be used to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your business. By taking note of your competition’s most effective marketing strategies, and the manner in which they are reaching customers, you can form a strategy for your company so that you are adequately informed as to the ways in which to reach potential consumers.

A competitive analysis conducted by you, or one done by Fintalent’s competitive analysis consultants, provides businesses with insight regarding their strengths and weaknesses as well as those of their competitors. This allows them to come up with an effective plan to compete against their competitors and ultimately gives them an advantage over them. Such analyses can not only help to improve businesses’ overall success, but also help to minimize mistakes and lost time. As a result, competitive analyses are becoming increasingly popular in a variety of industries.
