In the Thermocline
February 26, 2020
In its just-released February report, GF Data turned to an oceanographic term to describe the state of the middle market, noting that all of the action is in the thermocline the layer in deep water subject to significant temperature change even when the surface temperature is changing hardly at all.
Serving the Middle Market
GF Data was founded in 2006 by deal professionals committed to giving themselves and others a more accurate view of transactions being completed in the lower middle market. One of our customers labelled our reports “Truth Serum for the Middle Market” — a departure from the inflated or off-point information previously available. We liked it, and have embraced it as a statement of what we try to contribute to the profession.
