Quantify Stories

Investors need to translate their research and insight into judgments about an uncertain future so they can make investment decisions today

The problem is that their decision is largely baked before their team delivers a draft memo & model to inform their judgment

About Us

BPN co-founders Mike Ryan and Peter Moore have collaborated over three decades, working together both at Goldman Sachs and Harvard’s endowment.
1996
Co-Founder Mike Ryan taught co-founder Peter Moore scenario analysis in the preferred Goldman Sachs style. Moore received a Stanford MBA and Ryan became a partner at Goldman Sachs.
2006
Ryan was Co-Head of Global Equity Products at Goldman Sachs. During this same time frame, Moore won multiple National Science Foundation research grants to build a graph database platform to Quantify Stories in Scenarios.
2016
Ryan and Moore licensed BPN’s patented graph database platform to the Harvard Endowment, where Ryan managed $18 billion and was a member of Harvard’s Investment Committee.
Today
Now, they make BPN’s team of fundamental research analysts and patented software available to leverage your domain expertise and research in the BPN Platform.

If you want our BPN team to review the data room (under NDA), provide independent research and advisory services, and deliver a complete model and slide deck, we can serve as a formal Challenge Team with conclusions and recommendations summarized in a memo to compare to your own.

 

 

Both Case Builder and Odds Graph Strategic Scenario Models can be built by your team, or ours. 

 

Both Case Builder and Odds Graph Strategic Scenario Models leverage Evidence Mapper, our research management platform and our library of interactive charts & tables on the BPN Feed to enable your research team, final decisions makers, and any approved 3rd party to:

  • Source evidence using AI and human research to keep key assumptions current and well-informed
  • Map the evidence to specific assumptions to inform the  debate that drives the decision
  • Explore upside and downside of each case, or see the expected value across all cases, using our interactive charts and tables
  • Create and save your own versions over time to reflect the views of different team members
  • Update and timestamp versions as new information emerges or views change
  • Displays specific cash flow forecasts, valuation analyses and other key metrics
  • Compare alternative investments in a consistent format that highlights differences in assumptions and results

Evidence Mapper
on the BPN Feed

Clients collaborate with their team and approved 3rd parties in private communities to improve their  Case Builder and Odds Graph Strategic Scenario Models by using Evidence Mapper to source and debate the evidence that supports key assumptions using AI and human research, all mapped on the BPN Feed alongside the interactive charts and tables with the analysis.


Case Builder

Build Your own Logical Case Models atop any spreadsheet in 4 Easy Steps:

BUILD
Multiple cases with ease
TRANSFORM YOUR SPREADSHEET INTO A LOGICAL CASE MODEL
MAP
Research to Assumptions
MITIGATE COGNITIVE BIAS WITH AI + HUMAN RESEARCH
ASSIGN
Odds to Cases
JUDGE HOW LIKELY DIFFERENT CASES ARE TO OCCUR
EXPLORE
Interactive Charts
COMPARE ASSUMPTIONS & RESULTS ACROSS CASES

 

 

 

Case Builder starts with uploading any spreadsheet or by copying from an existing Case Builder template.

You define each case and explore the interactive output. You can easily add new cases, change assumptions or save versions.

Odds Graph

 

Use Our Proprietary Odds Graph, rather than a spreadsheet, to Create A Comprehensive Set of Cases with Odds.

 

Start a new company using one of our templates or copy from an existing model on our platform. You control the Odds Graph by entering a centerpoint and range for each assumption. You can keep it simple, or expand the Odds Graph to model the key drivers of revenue, expense and working capital across multiple market segments and success regimes.

 

Our team can produce an Odds Graph for you to adapt and update, or we can provide the training and support you need to start a new company Odds Graph on your own.


Challenge Team

Engage BPN to be Your Challenge Team. We'll deliver a complete Odds Graph or Case Builder model, lots of posts on Evidence Mapper, and a Challenge Team Memo with our conclusions in 1 week.
