BCS Global Markets, the investment banking division of BCS Financial Group, Russia’s largest independent securities broker, has partnered with women-owned Tigress Financial Partners LLC to provide US equity research information to Russian investors.
Tigress, a Finra registered broker dealer, provides capital markets and M&A advisory services. Investment strategies and specialised research is led by Ivan Feinseth, CIO and head of Research at Tigress Financial Partners. This includes daily market reports, and investment company, sector and industry reports based on proprietary data analysis.
The new US equity research and analytics offering will cover all US equity markets and sectors. It will be available to BCS GM’s institutional clients and high net worth clients of BCS GM Personal Investment Bank.
Kirill Chuyko, head of Research for BCS Global Markets, said: “The co-branded US research product that we – BCS and Tigress – are launching is unique in the Russian market, giving our clients direct access to a recognized US analytical product with a very strong track record and a sought-after analyst with extensive Wall Street experience. This ranks Ivan #146 out of 11.500 experts providing share recommendations to TipRanks web portal. Such a strong and verified track record is exactly what the Russian clients market were missing, and we are planning to offer this product to fill in the gap.”
