UK - Schroders says that analyst research should be focused on the long-term and that building strong relationships with companies is vital.
The investment manager, which oversees £88.3bn assets worldwide, said that investors should have confidence in companies’ reporting structure and most importantly avoid ‘disclosure surprises’.
Schroders said that it also encourages companies to give more access to other senior executives and divisional heads.
Nick Anderson, head of pan-European research at Schroders, said: “With the growing competition between companies to attract investment, management need to be more focussed on the allocation of capital within their company – this is what is important to investors.
“Analysts should also be more focused on the long-term economics of a business rather than the short-term earnings per share, as this fits in with the long-term investment strategy of fund managers. “
