   About Beacon Equity Research
 
Beacon Equity Research is committed to producing the highest-quality investment research, and helping investors make informed decisions. Our focus is primarily on the underserved small cap market, which has traditionally been shunned by Wall Street. We have no investment banking or consulting relationships with the companies we cover, removing an inherent conflict of interest typically found in most research firms. The companies we feature have agreed to enroll in our research program for a set period and have also agreed to pay an upfront fee to defray the costs of research, publishing and distribution. Our analysis and conclusions are therefore made independently from outside pressures. We seek to explore every pertinent aspect of a company's business and make investors fully aware of the potential risks and rewards involved with the company's stock. All of our reports are co-authored and approved by a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), one of the most prestigious designations in the securities industry. As a CFA holder, our analysts are bound by the AIMR code of ethics which state (from the AIMR handbook):

Members of the Association for Investment Management and Research shall:

1.    Act with integrity, competence, dignity, and in an ethical manner when dealing with the public, clients, prospects, employers, employees, and fellow members.
2.    Practice and encourage others to practice in a professional and ethical manner that will reflect credit on members and their profession.
3.    Strive to maintain and improve their competence and the competence of others in the profession.
4.    Use reasonable care and exercise independent professional judgment.


This stringent set of requirements assures investors that they are receiving unbiased and factual research.
