Just as you would never buy a car without checking it fitted your needs, or move into a house you hadn’t viewed first, institutional investors cannot effectively manage their portfolios without timely and relevant information.
Objective and expert research helps institutional investors direct their money into companies that are most likely to expand and grow, helping to deliver a better return on investment. Research also helps to provide insight into the potential impacts of macroeconomic trends and regulatory changes.
Barclays Research team sits at the heart of the bank, providing expert analysis with objective independence. The team provides notes, reports and issue recommendations to clients, like portfolio managers working on behalf of public and private sector UK pension funds.
The team covers hundreds of stocks in Europe, and has a significant presence covering US stocks too. In the UK, our specialists focus on both the large cap FTSE 100 firms as well as mid cap UK-based FTSE 250 companies.
With so many investment opportunities across markets and sectors, and fund managers dealing with often hundreds of companies at once, reliable, expert research is key to making informed investment decisions.
When investors are confident that they’re making the right investment decisions, and money is being channelled into growing companies, it’s a positive outcome for everyone.
