Research

Research is a key component of our integrated offering and a vital part of our IP. It helps equip the sales team to speak with real authority on house stocks, keeping the market fully informed and apprised and our corporate clients front of mind. Analysts also talk directly to investors.  

Our research analysts also work with the corporate department to help our clients articulate their equity story in a clear and understandable way to the institutional investor community.   

Our analysts are seasoned professionals often with decades of experience during which they have earned the trust of the key investing institutions. We fully recognise that only by protecting and nurturing this trust through acting with integrity will their voice be heard on behalf of our corporate clients.  Our research is produced for institutional investors and for our retained corporate clients is distributed broadly and widely under the MiFID II carve-out. We also have direct research contracts with a number of institutional clients to access all our research and related services.  

Our research is also available to private investors who are able to certify they are either High Net Worth individuals or Sophisticated Investors, as defined by the FCA, via Research Tree.
