UK Finance response to Rachel Kent’s Investment Research Review

Capital markets play a fundamental role at the centre of the UK’s financial services ecosystem and are key to supporting the UK’s longer-term economic future.

In progressing a range of measures to improve the UK’s capital markets, the government is rightly focussing on investment research as one factor amongst a range of others that should be given due consideration. A dynamic investment research ecosystem is key to well-functioning and competitive UK capital markets that serve the companies and investors of tomorrow, and help to drive economic growth.
