We are one of the largest independent research providers in Europe. Through digital innovation, we have opened up new markets for equity research.
We are well connected in the German and European capital markets and have access to countless potential investors, including those outside the mainstream: family offices, boutique funds, independent asset managers and high net worth individuals. We bring listed companies and investors together at roundtables and roadshows. And we also support IPOs or capital increases, if necessary in cooperation with our partner, the listed mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG.
Our analysts have learnt their trade at leading banks and have many years of industry experience. Our growing coverage of more than 90 companies and increasing demand from investors show that the capital markets value our research.
Research is not just in our name, it is in our DNA. Our analysts have the experience of leading international investment banks and are in close contact with management, investors and the financial press. The quality of our research and analysis is recognised by the capital markets and helps issuers develop and communicate their equity story. We not only publish updates on quarterly results, but also provide creative analysis between reporting periods when investor attention is much higher. We write in English for maximum reach, but also in German on request.
Time to publication
Our research does not end up in a drawer, but on the screens of thousands of investors: More and more family offices, independent asset managers, boutique funds and high net worth individuals are subscribing to our publications. Our MiFID II-compliant platform, ResearchHub, is freely accessible and presents issuers in a modern, engaging environment alongside world-renowned companies. We target institutional investors via Bloomberg, Refinitiv and CapitalIQ. And for retail investors, we also publish via social media and retail platforms. This is complemented by our SEO optimisation, so that our research often appears at the top of Google searches.
Below is a selection of our latest research updates. Feel free to explore.
Data is the new oil. Our digital business model gives us insight into current investor interests and trends – a measurable advantage when targeting investors at hundreds of events each year.
Online roundtables allow issuers and interested investors from our network to easily stay connected. On our platform, we provide companies with helpful tools for the preparation, execution and follow-up of events: real-time registration lists, investor profiles, professional moderation and detailed feedback after the event to fine-tune IR work. We are also happy to record the roundtable as a video to reach an even wider audience.
Regular communication is the basis for a lasting and trusting relationship between issuers and investors. Earnings calls after the publication of financial reports provide an opportunity to explain figures, provide background information, answer open questions and thus stay on top of the capital market’s perception. Of course, we support earnings calls with all the tools developed for roundtables: Real-time registration lists, investor profiles, professional moderation, video recording and meaningful feedback.
Our 5 to 6 online pop-up conferences per year are deliberately scheduled at short notice. This allows us to focus on sectors of high interest and topicality, ensuring maximum investor attention. Selected companies gain access to a broad investor base, including neglected groups such as family offices and independent asset managers, in an efficient 60 minutes. Upon request, we can complement the conference with 1-on-1 meetings.
Short videos are the new format of choice in the investment industry: Whether it is an elevator pitch, a CEO interview, a behind-the-scenes look or a commentary on the latest quarterly results, video allows issuers to reach investors with little time and tight budgets. We offer professional pre- and post-production and use our extensive distribution network for targeted marketing.
Whether it is a capital increase, IPO, secondary placement or bond issue. Our close relationships with European investors make us the ideal partner.
We are happy to assist issuers with capital increases, IPOs, secondary placements, or bond issues – both with transaction-related research and with the placement of shares or bonds with our partner, the listed mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG, under whose liability umbrella we provide the services of investment brokerage (Section 2 (2) No. 3 WpIG) and placement business (Section 2 (2) No. 8 WpIG) as a tied agent. Thanks to our many years of experience, we are able to manage the entire process of structuring, market sounding, placement and technical execution of the transaction.
