Independent and Trustworthy Analysis

Unfortunately, investment banking activity taints most of the research available from the sell-side. Our market analysis shows that companies are 40% more likely to be rated as a Buy by brokers that are receiving fees from those same companies for underwriting services.

Sell-side analysts also give favourable ratings to companies to stay on the good side of company management. Sell-side analysts rely on these good relations to organize industry conferences and non-deal roadshow meetings between institutional investors and company management.

ARC is free from any outside influence. As part of our value-added process we screen out the companies that we think receive more favourable recommendations from sell-side analysts due to investment banking activity and protecting relations with company management.
