Within Equity research, we aim to deliver the very best research and give access to the best analysts in the market. Fundamental research is the very foundation of our equities offering and one of our core strengths is the defined niche we enjoy through concentrating on our home Nordic markets, where we have in excess of 65 analysts and offices in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, London, New York, and Frankfurt.
It is an approach that has seen us ranked first among investment banks in the Nordic region, year after year and we have gathered a host of awards that serve as a testament to the service we provide.
As our client, it means that on a day-to-day basis you'll be dealing with people who have a deep understanding of the equities markets and their accompanying unpredictability – and who are able to identify investment opportunities and communicate them to you in a timely manner.
Our analysts have an in depth knowledge of more than 300 covered Nordic companies, as a result of many years coverage including various stages of the business cycle and an extremely close relationship with corporate senior management in these companies. These close relationships also provide unrivalled access to senior management for our clients through our corporate access function.
Every year our equities research team compiles some 7,000 company-specific reports. We make comparisons within a particular industry and benchmark businesses against their international competitors. In certain publications, we also look at matters from a macro-economic angle.
Depending on the specific publication, we consider the market from a day-to-day or weekly perspective, or from a more long-term point of view. Our combined expertise is most clearly evident in our electronic database, Equity Research Online. Via the internet, our clients have access to 40,000 reports with analyses and forecasts covering 300 Nordic companies. This service makes it possible for you to make your own analyses by comparing key figures within various industry sectors, compile recent market statistics and filter information for various purposes.
We monitor the performance of companies representing 90 per cent of the market value of the four leading stock exchanges in the Nordic region. And we can provide you with a single point of entry to the whole of the Nordic equities and derivatives market.
