“We are pleased to have an alliance with Dickenson World for India. Driven by MiFID II regulations in Europe, which is becoming the de facto global standard, the equity research profession is going through a revolution. Global companies, especially mid-caps and small-caps are increasingly turning to sponsored research to fill the gap in broker research coverage. This webinar will form an inclusive setting to discuss the context and the value of the sponsored research in the global and Indian context,” commented Keith Hiscock, CEO, Hardman & Co.

“Despite the after-effect of the ongoing pandemic, India will continue to remain one of the most attractive emerging markets from an equity investment point of view. Global portfolio managers will continue to look for fundamentally sound companies with strong earning powers and a long runway. Hardman & Co’s independent research provides an accurate business perspective to large investors for them to determine the potential winners. We are delighted to collaborate with Hardman & Co. to bring a world class service to India’s doorsteps. We believe that many Indian companies would benefit from a highly trusted ‘sponsored’ coverage source that also has a wide buy-side readership across global markets,” stated Manoj Saha, Managing Director, Dickenson World.

This webinar is designed for CEOs, CFOs and IROs of listed companies, or of private companies planning to go public in the next 12-18 months. Anyone interested to know more can Register
