The Investorside Seal
The Investorside Research Association examines and certifies that its research providers are free of investment banking conflicts.
The Association maintains a robust certification process that includes a thorough review of member applicants (provider's) research and marketing materials and an attestation that they provide no investment banking services. Investorside certified research providers are potentially liable for civil and criminal penalties under Federal and State laws covering fraud, fair representation and truth in advertising if found to have used the Investorside trademark to misrepresent themselves to investors as free of investment banking. We encourage investors to look for this seal next to the standard research disclaimer found on investment research.
