WHY CHOOSE ED
"Many thanks to @equity_research for a superb Investor Forum. $BMK.L , $VLG.L & $VP.L all interesting companies. I recommend these events. "
"We cannot thank you enough for opening our eyes to private investors."
"MHP believes commissioned research is an important part of the toolkit to attract new investors and improve liquidity. We rate ED's analysts and research very highly as one of the leading providers in this space."
"One of the biggest problems private investors have, is getting access to broker research. It’s basically impossible for many investors. Therefore I feel some commissioned research is really important and a good investment for companies. In my experience ED are far more proactive than other firms in this space."

"There is a need now, more than ever before, for real insight and clarity to be brought to company messages for investors….I would strongly recommend Equity Development to the management of any company."

"The team at ED consistently produce high quality research and highlight profitable investment opportunities, an invaluable tool for small cap investors in this under researched space."
