New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2005
Today Global Independent Research has announced its formation. A truly and uniquely independent brand of technology equity research firm, the GIR team is setting out with a mission to bring institutional investors greater value and true information advantage.
Clients who had come to rely on TerraNova Institutional Equity Research can be secure in the knowledge that Global Independent Research and its team, formerly with TerraNova, will pick up exactly where TerraNova Institutional Equity Research left off. "We are bringing clients not just the traditional analysis of financial results, but more importantly the greatly detailed incremental data that changes how a given stock will trade," said Weiyee In, the head of GIR's research team.
"Portfolio managers have responded very positively to this team's ability to identify disruptive technologies and events ahead of the Wall Street pack," added Mr. In. "In today's technology equity markets, this knowledge of which companies are positioned well and which are positioned poorly can make all the difference."
GIR is driven towards developing strategic investment themes based on a combination of top down industry trends and bottoms up analysis of key fundamentals and corporate operations. GIR targets segments that are experiencing disruption through discontinuous innovations or upheavals in the competitive landscape. Heavy emphasis is placed on being cross-border and cross-sector in channel checks and analyzing how this data impacts company results and share prices up and down the value chain.
GIR strives towards discovering companies that are misunderstood by the investment community and stocks that are inappropriately valued through these misconceptions. The GIR focus is not circumscribed by market capitalization.
In addition, Global Independent Research was formed with the belief that investors need greater value than the independence that was arrived at under the global research settlement for Third Party Research. GIR is not involved in investment banking and is not biased by corporate financing activities or other conflicts of interest. Beyond analyzing common factors that affect corporate financial results, GIR is dedicated to uncovering opportunities in the stock markets through industry channel checks and in-depth investment analysis. GIR has strict policies and procedures for potential conflicts of interest to ensure the objectivity and independence of our research.
Global Independent Research counts among its audience some of the world's smartest and most successful technology portfolio managers.
The Research team at GIR has both industry expertise in their areas of coverage as well as Wall Street and finance experience. GIR analysts have been consistently recognized, cited and sought by technology company management, the financial press, and industry and broadcast media for their insights. Global analysts have been quoted in StreetAccount, Economist Intelligence Unit reports, Smart Money, TheStreet.com, Reuters, CNet, Light Reading, PC World, GameSpot, Game Daily, Game Genesis, the AOL Games Channel and more.
The Global team brings experience working for UBS, Credit Suisse First Boston, Credit Lyonnaise, JP Morgan, Salomon Brothers, Schroders plc, Merrill Lynch, Donaldson Lufkin Jenrette, Agere Systems, Reed Business Information, and The Mc-Graw Hill Companies.
