Putting Investors FIRST 

Carrying out research is easier than you imagine. If you think that those participating in research are experienced professors, you're deeply mistaken. Any college student has to take part in research and submit a paper with results. And it's possible due to the huge efforts of The First Research Consortium and other important organizations, setting standards and keeping an eye on their implementation. If you're afraid of studying because of the need to write academic papers, you can buy thesis online and get a high grade without much effort. It may seem unfair, but if you take into account the circumstances that made you ask for help, you'll quickly dispel any doubts. No one teacher or professor will notice that someone writes the thesis. BestCustomWriting.com is a reliable service interested in providing high-quality assistance to its clients. And judging by the growing number of clients, they do everything right.

The FIRST Research Consortium, founded in May, 2003 as a peer-based not-for-profit Association of Standards-Based Research Providers, and recognizing that surveys indicate that three out of every four investors are “most influenced” by an Analyst report, believes it to be in the public’s interest to define the provision of such research; and,

In conjunction with ethical Providers, to from time to time establish, promulgate and update acceptable industry-wide umbrella, global “Standards of Practice for Research Providers,” and to fully inform and educate the industry and the public as to these “Standards” and deviations therefrom.


Such Research Providers may be defined or classified as follows:
Institutional Research Providers are those that offer analytical research internally, or to institutional or retail clients and/or to the general public. Often such Providers are brokerages or investment banks, and their Analysts may be in-house or contractual.

Subscriber-Based Research Providers are those that offer analytical research to institutional (brokerage, money management, investment banking, hedge fund) clients and/or the investing public in exchange for an annual or monthly subscription fee, and/or a per-report fee.

Sponsored Research Providers are those that offer analytical research to institutional and/or the general investing public for a fee. The fee may be paid by any entity.
