What is a Case Study?


Case studies showcase examples of good practice. A good practice is a method, a technique, a project or an initiative that has consistently shown results superior to those achieved with other means or by other projects and initiatives, and thus it is used as a benchmark. Case studies may be prepared to analyse a specific financial instrument or research thematic issues of interest across a number of financial instruments.

What is a Factsheet?
