Writing Securities Research: A Best Practice Guide
"Jeremy Bolland's book is essential reading for all people involved in writing securities research. Moreover, it is not just a technical and legal guide, but also a timely reminder of the principles of good writing." —Andrew Leeming, Author of The Super Analysts
"Knowing your ratios and spreadsheets is no longer enough to become an investment analyst. As Jeremy Bolland points out, you need to know your do's and don'ts of how to approach clients and companies. This guide to doing it properly is an obvious selection for the bookshelf of anyone who aspires to offer investment advice and a fine reference for anyone who receives such advice."—Jake van der Kamp, Financial Columnist, South China Morning Post
"At last, here's a comprehensive yet easy-to-read guide explaining all the best practice principles involved in writing securities research. It is full of useful information. If all securities analysts followed the guidance that has been clearly laid out in this book by Jeremy Bolland, research enforcement regulators around the world would be out of a job. Anyone who is involved in writing and publishing research, or using research for investment decisions, from the novice to the expert, should read this book. I highly recommend it."—Anthony Espina, Chairman, Hong Kong Stockbrokers Association
