DeepBench’s clients are leading investment firms, consultancies, and corporations. DeepBench will never place an advisor into an consultation with a direct competitor or in situations where their current employer is the topic of research.
Clients approach DeepBench to identify advisors to help them with their most critical business problems. They seek to gather expert insights, to validate hypotheses, and to make informed decisions for strategic initiatives. Often, clients are looking to learn nuances within an industry where they lack expertise.
When you are invited to join DeepBench as an advisor we will send you carefully selected opportunities for consultations with our clients. These opportunities will be matched to your individual experiences and areas of expertise. Consultations typically take one of two forms: (1) 30 - 60 minute phone call with the client or (2) written feedback to questions. The approximate length and format of a consultation will be specified in advance.
When DeepBench presents consultation opportunities to our advisors, we will provide a brief description of the scope of the research being conducted. A good way to anticipate the line of questioning is to review the screening questions that are provided. For compliance, both clients and advisors are expressly prohibited from asking or discussing confidential and or sensitive materials and topics. This stipulation is protected by DeepBench’s Terms and Conditions for both Advisors and clients.
The short answer is no. Other than a few screening questions to qualify our advisors for the consultation, no preparation is required. By nature, consultations are intellectual discussions where the client is looking for your unique insights. Clients are not looking for advisors to produce any work or output.
Per our Terms and Conditions with clients, names of our Advisors are to be treated as strictly confidential and cannot be shared with any other parties or used in any content without the Advisor’s previously stated consent.
