News Releases The aim of FINRA's equity and debt research analyst and research report rules is to foster objectivity and transparency in research reports and public appearances and provide investors with more reliable and useful information to make investment decisions.
The rules further prohibit certain conduct where the conflicts are considered too pronounced to be cured by disclosure. Several of the equity research rules' provisions implement provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of "Sarbanes-Oxley"which mandates separation between research and investment banking, proscribes conduct that could compromise a research analyst's objectivity and requires specific disclosures in research reports and public appearances.
The following FINRA rules apply to research analysts, research reports, and the registration of research analysts and research principals. The rule requires firms to establish and implement policies and procedures to identify and manage research-related conflicts of interest.
Among other things, the policies must separate research from investment banking with respect to supervision of research analysts, budget determinations and compensation of analysts. The rule further prohibits promises of favorable research and analyst participation in solicitation of investment banking business and road shows.
The rule also requires disclosure of investment banking and other material conflicts of interest, such as personal and firm ownership of a subject company's securities. The rule imposes requirements similar to Rule on debt research distributed to retail investors, with some modifications to reflect the unique nature of the debt markets.
The rule specifies the prohibited and permissible interactions between the debt research personnel and sales and trading and principal trading personnel.
The rule also exempts from many of its provisions and all of the specific disclosure requirements debt research that is distributed only to eligible institutional investors. There currently is no equivalent requirement for debt research analysts.The ANA report into media agency kickbacks is set to be more incendiary than many people in the industry had first thought.
