How You’ll Succeed
Research – All Research must be reviewed and approved by a Licensed Supervisory Analyst (SA) before it can be distributed into the US. Research is first reviewed by an Editor for editorial issues, then by the Supervisory Analysts (SA) for quality control and compliance requirements. The Supervisory Analysts work on a shift schedule. All SAs provide back-up for the Editorial team and each other with the goal of providing seamless coverage. The SA will be involved in all aspects of the publishing process, which includes working closely with Analysts and Associates to ensure timely and accurate publication of their research. The incumbent must have a depth of knowledge for financial analysis and about the capital markets.

In reviewing research, a Supervisory Analyst will check that:

  • The thesis and valuation are clearly presented, justifiable and form a reasonable basis for the rating
  • The reports contain a reasonable basis from which an intelligent investor can make an informed decision; this can entail clarifying and highlighting the rationale for estimate changes, ratings changes, risk assessment and price target changes
  • Research is compliant within the parameters set by the various regulatory regimes
  • Exhibits cited are included, properly labelled, referenced and adequately described
  • Information presented is publicly available and appropriately attributed, particularly when commenting on actual or possible corporate activity
  • Potential conflicts of interest are managed by the inclusion of appropriate disclosures and disclaimers
  • References to other companies are relevant and include hedge clauses
  • Content of research reports is clear, fair and not misleading
  • Content (argument flow, structure, logic and consistency) is validated
  • Efficient and effective review of reports is critical to protect the interests of the firm and to maintain a competitive advantage by releasing research information before the rest of the Street, especially when earnings are being announced.
