Award-Winning Wall Street Equity Analyst Launches Company-Sponsored Research Firm Ahead Of European MiFID II Impact On U.S. Capital Markets

NEW YORK CITY — June 20, 2018 — Eric M. Beder, award-winning veteran consumer equity analyst, today launched Small Cap Consumer Research LLC a company-sponsored independent equity research and consulting boutique firm focused on small to mid-cap publicly-traded companies with equity market capitalization under $4 billion in the consumer, specialty retail, apparel and brand licensing sectors.

Worldwide Shift in Equity Research Model

Beder said: “We are poised to lead company-sponsored equity research in the consumer space and deliver independent, compelling institutional grade analyses. MiFID II compliance and implementation became effective in Europe January 1, 2018 and we believe it will impact U.S. capital markets near-term as equity research continues to materially shift away from small to mid-cap companies – Small Cap Consumer Research, LLC is the emerging solution to provide higher visibility, insightful and impactful equity research coverage for companies and institutional investors.  We believe our model is the future of equity research.”

Incorporating Best of Traditional Wall Street Firms

The Small Cap Consumer Research model is aligned with leading aggregators, data and research infrastructure providers including FactSet, BlueMatrix and other key delivery systems to distribute consumer equity research with the same institutional reach and quality traditional Wall Street firms provide.  In addition to standard initiation, financial, and estimate updates — we deliver focused equity research coverage on overlooked drivers to institutional investors.
