EQUITY RESEARCH TRAINING
WHAT IS EQUITY RESEARCH?
Equity research in the finance industry is as the name suggests, the research and projection of equities, commodities, stocks and bonds. Usually, Equity Research closely analyzes small groups of stock in order to provide better recommendations for insightful investments. A division of equity research in a buy-side or sell-side firm is usually responsible for the collection and analysis of detailed information which benefits both provider and recipient. Split into 2 distinct categories, research and projections, research is the investigation and studying of a composite of financial records, market issues and direct company information, while projections (similar to valuation in banking) is the analysis of the research to predict company trends and earnings estimates. This information is then used by investors to assist them in their investment choices.
Not all equity research is equal. Many large investment institutions incorporate their own internal equity research analysts in order to provide their company a competitive edge.
