"Maintaining and acquiring new business"

Contribution and acquisition

"LBS research quantified the impact of Reuters Market Light (RML) on reducing price dispersion in crop markets: 12%. This statistically and rigorously number helped us build the case for RML's impact, especially to our many government and micro-finance institutions (MFI) clients. It was the first time independently verified that RML was also making markets efficient, over and above empowering individual farmers to improve their yields, bargaining power and net profits."

"The LBS research helped contribute to maintaining continuity in our commercial relationships and also built a stronger case for acquiring new government and MFI clients."
