BOUTIQUE RESEARCH FIRM BELIEVES TOP RATED ANALYSTS ARE THE WAY UNDER MiFID II – Ed Wolfe, the founder of boutique equity research house Wolfe Research, believes the impact of MiFID II will only “sharpen the edge” of his mid-sized business in the longer term as the regulation is enforced. With the new European regulation approaching, Ed believes his top rated analysts will thrive in a MiFID II world, stating that “good is not good enough”, as analysts at Wolfe research typically hold very impressive Institutional Investor (II) ratings, a ranking system highly respected on Wall Street. Wolfe always looks to add up to three top rated analysts every year, with the current number of analysts standing at 17. Ed Wolfe concludes by saying, “MiFID will be difficult for everybody for the next 18 months to two years. I think the winner will be those that have figured out how to price research and have differentiated research that clients want.” #SpartanInternational
