Research from Edison

A leading independent provider of investment intelligence, providing both equity research and investor access for listed companies.


Retained by over 400 companies worldwide, Edison’s 100+ analysts write independent, balanced research across ten different sectors.

Edison does not trade in securities, fund raise or undertake corporate finance or broking transactions, nor is paid on the performance of the stocks it covers and as a consequence is not required to restrict access to its research.

With the largest distribution reach of any research provider coupled with readership tracking technology, Edison helps companies evolve their shareholder base and target appropriate investors across retail, private wealth and institutional funds. Alliance Trust Savings customers can now access this research free of charge, to help you make more informed investment decisions.

Our corporate services also include an Investor Access Service where we actively market companies to professional investors, with a particular focus on private client wealth managers, and a Commercial Due Diligence Service where we assist companies, private equity houses and corporate finance teams in identifying and assessing potential corporate transactions.

Edison is authorised and regulated by the FCA
