Case Studies

Leveraging Public Datasets to Identify Investment Opportunities

Engagement
A hedge fund engaged Gryphon to help identify commercial real estate investment opportunities in New York City.

Investigation
Using real estate records, mortgage information, liens, court filings, and information about the owners and principals of properties, Gryphon created an easy-to-use tool for the client to find properties of interest. Gryphon compiled data from over 20 public datasets and also built automated processes into the tool capable of updating it as new data became available. Combining these datasets required careful entity resolution in order to trace entities such as buildings and individuals across datasets while working closely with the client to identify the information most relevant to their investment needs.

Result
As a result of our investigation, the client was able to successfully launch and close an investment fund that raised hundreds of millions of dollars.

Implementing Compliance Metrics for Government Entities

Engagement
Working closely alongside outside counsel and a state office of the attorney general, Gryphon worked to demonstrate that compliance requirements were not being fulfilled by certain companies that were selling products in the state that were considered a potential danger to public health.

Investigation
After an intensive review of hundreds of documents, Gryphon identified algorithms that companies had developed in order to perform their internal compliance. We then recreated these metrics and implemented them on historical datasets that could have been available to the company at the time their metrics were active. The purpose of the investigation was to assess how the product volume that was identified by the companies’ compliance metrics compared to the product volume that could have been identified by the same metrics when implemented on the available data.

Result
Our investigation found that the product volume that companies could have identified using the available data as being in violation of their own compliance algorithms was not equal to the product volume that they ultimately identified in their reporting.
