HSBC revises research offerings

The bank has stopped publishing its investment ratings and price targets. Client demand has meant the bank will increasingly offer long-term research. “Our clients are asking for longer-term research focused on transformational trends and ideas, on both a macro and sector level, and that is what we will deliver," said Stephen King, global head of research, economics and strategy.

The bank will now focus on three areas: macro strategy, involving economic, asset allocation and strategy research; global sector/industry research; and global emerging markets research.

“We conducted a strategic review of our research and clients told us they wanted less maintenance and me-too research, and more original thinking and analysis,” said Robert Vaudry, global head of research, sectors and companies.
