G Score was created by former Harvard Ph.D. student, Partha Mohanram for strategizing which companies to invest in. Mohanram set out to identify a series of accounting and other business-related financial metrics that would separate glamour/growth companies with the potential for excess return from those that didn’t. Kona Equity has repurposed the G Score to work with small private businesses.
The G Score is an eight-point scale where firms are given a score of 1 for each of the criteria that they pass. A company that passes all eight criteria will obtain a G Score of 8, while firms that pass none get a G Score of 0. Mohanram’s approach compares a company against the sector or industry median. The model has proven to be one of, if not the best systematic model in the past twenty years.
Our software algorithmically analyzes this data to help see where the world is going.
