BNY to launch independent research screening service


BNY Jaywalk, the Bank of New York's independent research consultancy, will be launching a research screening service that hedge funds and other money managers can use to identify independent research analysts.

Money managers using the service will be able to screen by stock ticker symbol or sector to monitor changes in recommendations by independent analysts in the BNY Jaywalk database. The service will also allow managers to seek out stock picks and trend analysis from the best analysts in the database, who can be identified based on the historical performance of their earnings and buy/sell predictions.
