OBSR (OLD BROAD STREET RESEARCH)
Fund analysis experts that use an investment research approach that has been in place since 1994. The emphasis is on looking forwards, not backwards; and for this reason they place a great deal of importance on the qualitative aspects of research such as understanding investment processes and meeting the management teams. Their conclusions are nonetheless also informed by detailed analysis of quantitative data such as historic returns. This means that they are aware of past results rather than driven by them and use this statistical information to validate qualitative research.
