MiFID II, one of the largest regulatory reforms in history, has significantly changed the financial industry in the European Union and across the globe.
Many companies find it challenging to meet MiFID II requirements to provide clients with clear, independent research to help them make informed investment decisions. If you have doubts about your firm’s research post MiFID, you should contact CFRA. We’re uniquely positioned to help.
Unlike other companies, we haven’t had to change our business model to be MiFID compliant. We have always delivered high-quality, cost-effective research focused on investors' needs.
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.
CFRA’s pricing is transparent. We make it easy to understand how much you’re spending on research. We’re also available to guide you through your budget-planning process.
CFRA helps streamline regulatory processes and procedures.
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.
