They also recognise that trading volumes are increasingly generated not just by the institutional investment community, but also by the private wealth and retail investor communities, which lack access to reliable data and high-quality research. As a result, exchanges are allocating larger budgets to the provision of research as they compete with each other to become attractive listing venues. Analysis from research firms like Edison is an important and globally recognised way to promote the proper pricing of listed companies. High-quality equity research helps examine the information released by issuers and assists in establishing a context for businesses within their local and global investor marketplace. With over 80 analysts organised by sector expertise, Edison researches over 400 companies worldwide, making it one of the world's largest investment research firms. Its research is sent out via its extensive distribution platform and affiliated networks, making its research available on professional and internet information platforms worldwide.
