Broker research has become less available and reliable...

Falling commission rates for brokers have led to a budget squeeze on their research departments. A smaller budget often leads research managers to focus on the most well-known large-cap companies—the same companies that everybody else covers. 

 

Many asset owners rely heavily on brokers to provide most of their research, and this narrow coverage often makes it harder to get data on mid and small cap companies.

These constraints limit the informational advantages for asset owners looking to broker research for guidance.

Your level of invested capital determines your ability to access bulge-bracket investment banks’ services, which restricts smaller investors. Even in the case of sufficient capital, often that research may not be free from conflicts of interest.

 

As an asset owner, you encounter further difficulties when you consider that fee structures incentivize brokers to keep you trading, rather than consistently providing you with profitable investment ideas.

Gaps in equity-specific expertise and research capacity...

Most asset owners don’t have the benefit of focusing all their time and resources exclusively on the equity portion of their portfolios. Equity research requires a lot of groundwork, and this is difficult to do in-house without a full research operation.

As investors feel the squeeze on the quality of available broker research, they come face-to-face with the constraints imposed on their own in-house research capabilities. Many investors either don’t have a background in all kinds of investing or simply lack the time to do research and construct an optimized stock portfolio.

Picking stocks is challenging, delicate work—an unfortunate side effect being that many asset owners never get to realize the full potential of their capital.
