What sets us apart?
The result of this approach is that while others are contracting their efforts, if not shuttering them altogether in the MiFID II environment, we are expanding. We are adding experienced analysts and smart, energetic associates, while others are cutting back. We are rolling out coverage on more names, not less. We are planning lots of corporate access and meetings with industry experts. We are committed to the business of making money for clients with differentiated research and becoming the premier Global Tech research boutique.
