Many independent research providers claim to be conflict free, but they really aren’t. Independent research has always been at the heart of CFRA’s business model. We do not provide investment advisory services or manage portfolios because we don’t want to compete with our clients. Instead, we’ve always made it our mission to supply them with the best quality, forward-focused research.
As an independent and objective research provider, CFRA has the courage and integrity to call it like we see it on “Sell” ratings, without the influence of banking and trading relationships.
CFRA is one of the world’s largest independent research providers, but we’re still able to provide you with individualized help and support. We’re flexible enough to be able to integrate with your internal or external research reporting platforms.
