David Riedel had been a research analyst for over fifteen years with a strong focus on Emerging Markets as the Head of Thai Research and Regional Telecommunications analyst for Salomon Smith Barney. One of the major challenges that Mr. Riedel witnessed during his tenure in major investment houses was the dramatic decline in the quality of research, especially in emerging markets.
Mr. Riedel founded the Riedel Research Group in 2003 on two premises:
1) Throughout the industry, most fund managers face the same decision-making challenges.
2) It is imperative to produce independent and objective research supported with high-quality local intelligence.
Why is there an Urgent Need for Objective Research in Emerging Markets?
1) A decline in research has created a challenge for Emerging Market fund managers.
Emerging markets-focused fund managers face a serious problem with the current state of equity research in their markets. First, there has been a dramatic decline in the quality of research in the Emerging Markets. Second, there has always been a lack of independence and objectivity in international research as a result of pressure from brokerage firms and corporates for positive outlooks and ratings. In addition, an erratic focus on "hot" markets creates much enthusiasm among the investment banks but very little in the way of good, objective equity research.
2) Smaller markets, mid-cap stocks and proprietary insights have a big impact on portfolio performance.
Smaller markets can move quickly and have an impact on the benchmarks. Good mid-cap picks and proprietary insights into large-cap stocks can boost fund manager performance.
3) Fund managers are underserved in the Emerging Markets.
Because of issues with trading volume as well as research coverage, fund managers are being underserved as coverage by investment banks is driven by investment banking deals rather than providing quality equity research.
