The Patent Board, working in conjunction with Markit, has developed a set of research reports that describe and quantify a company’s ability to develop high quality intellectual property. It can be termed an investment model that considers intellectual property attributes. The model takes into account patent grants, technology quality, technology, relevance, scientific relevance, scientific quality, and technology timing. The research is now available. At this time two funds are using the research to drive equity buy positions. Our research is currently being evaluated by 30 other funds.
