“I am immensely proud of the depth of knowledge and capability of all of our research teams. I know that when talking to investors they will provide the sharpest insights, based on a dedication to an outstanding understanding of the sectors that they cover”.

Simon Bowler Head of Research

Broad UK market coverage

We go the extra mile to understand the companies we cover. Our analysts benefit from extensive exposure to management teams, investors industry experts, data providers and our growing network of privately owned businesses. This fuels unique, intelligent and actionable insights. The median career length of sell-side research experience within our team is close to 20 years. We selectively cover non-UK listed companies where our knowledge base and understanding can offer value to stakeholders.

Our research continues to go from strength to strength – it’s a critical part of our connected offering

Connected to investors

We offer one of the largest dedicated UK equities teams in the market, based in London, Dublin and New York. The depth of our relationships across Europe and the US with our comprehensive insights into current shareholder views on public and private companies enables us to target future shareholders with carefully crafted roadshows and content.

Investing in our teams

Our research distribution has expanded following MiFID II, despite the volume of research in the industry overall having fallen. We are therefore in a strong position to continue capitalising on the quality and detail of our analysis. We have also continued to invest in our equity sales capability, while our innovative and flexible approach has seen our network extend into retail fund managers and regional pension funds via our dedicated private client fund manager service.

“Numis is an excellent broker for the buy-side. They have strong research and an experienced sales staff that truly understands how companies operate. It is clear to our investment team that Numis provides the best overall coverage of the UK market”.
