Who we are
Ingham Analytics is financial markets and advisory house with a proven track record of independent analysis and impartial advice internationally. The business is non-aligned and has no potentially conflicting activities.
We provide analysis on corporate actions such as mergers & acquisitions, new listings, and equity and debt issuance. Circulars and prospectuses are typically dense, wordy, and laced with jargon that few understand. We cut through that to give a succinct analysis of a corporate action, what the financial effect is, and what we think you as an investor should do.
The advent of MiFID II in the EU in 2018 has made an independent research and advisory offering particularly pertinent. These tougher MiFID II rules require fund managers to pay for analyst research and insights separately to trading fees. The change restricts inducements and prevents conflicts of interest. Ethical considerations, as championed by the CFA Institute and other professional bodies, further strengthens the appeal of impartiality for investor protection. But we go the final mile – everyone is welcome, not just an elitist few.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” — Benjamin Franklin
Are you looking for seasoned, no-nonsense advice?
Perhaps wondering what to buy or sell across different securities? Or maybe seeking a better understanding in these confusing and volatile times? Or maybe just an ironic, entertaining yet discerning observation on the passing scene, as we communicate in our popular wrap of the week on Sunday?
Then welcome to Ingham Analytics, you’ll feel right at home. Our approach is less is more, you won’t be deluged with vacuous stuff, there is enough of that about, but what we send out we think you’ll want to have in your decision-making arsenal.

The Ingham Analytics Weekly Letter on Sunday
Retail investors can take a leaf out of the books of some sovereign wealth funds, typically state-owned asset managers investing on behalf of nations.
The stock is off after release of the Q2 results and probably because of the usual subscriber effect. But that is fine as we have had fair value of $500 or below for a while.
Want a taste before signing up?
We have built a good following and want to grow that but we are also mindful that there will be people who haven’t come across us and want to validate who and what we are first.
We are putting together an archive of free notes for you to explore and get a taste of the value we strive to impart.
Cabin fever is the theme for us this Sunday. That is, when it comes to the psychosis that is stock market behaviour in the US.
Holdings of ZAR denominated debt by foreigners has fallen to 30% overall from around 42% in 2018. Even before COVID-19 foreigners could see South Africa as a rising sovereign risk.
This week we’re taking a look at business travel, down but hopefully not out in future, commercial property trusts, an alternative to Volkswagen ordinary shares…
