Research is stock specific and recommendation-oriented rather than descriptive. Basic statistical work is outsourced, allowing more time for ideas generation. An Annual Review of the Investment Company sector sets the framework for the development of a medium term buy list aimed at stimulating debate amongst the private banking community. Regular investment ideaschallenge, refresh and complement this core product.

Alan worked in the Corporate and Institutional Banking department of NatWest for several years, focusing on financial institutions and US corporates, before joining the team just before its move to Kleinwort Benson in 1995.

The research team was ranked second for Investment Trust (Alternatives) Research in the 2016 Extel Survey, with Alan Brierley voted the number two analyst.  In 2014, the research team was ranked second in Investment Trust Research, and Alan was voted the top analyst.  In November 2012, Alan won the Investment Company of the Year Best Research Analyst Award 2012.
