Storm Research Limited has implemented controls & procedures to ensure that the firm’s research is of high quality and in compliance with the Financial Conduct Authority’s (“FCA”) rules and guidance on conflicts of interest which may arise in the production of independent research. This falls principally into the FCA’s policy on Conduct of Business (“COBS”) part 12 on investment research.
Storm Research is required under these regulations to ensure that the firm’s systems, controls and procedures are robust and satisfactory to identify and manage any conflicts of interest which could arise in relation to research, and to ensure, as far as practical, that the arrangements operate effectively.
We have identified the main conflicts of interest in relation to investment research, and controls and procedures have been implemented to manage these conflicts in the best interests of its clients.
