OilX today announces that it has become a certified independent research provider member of Euro IRP, the European Association of Independent Research Providers. Euro IRP represents the interests of independent investment research firms which are based in Europe or which have clients or activities in Europe.
Industry developments and European regulations such as the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) have brought attention to the need for unbiased investment research, the injection of transparency across the European Union's financial markets, and the role which independent research providers can play. In order to be Euro IRP certified, provider members must attest that they do not derive their revenue primarily from investment banking, underwriting or corporate broking, proprietary trading or market making, management consultancy services for clients other than investors, or from companies that were the subject of this research.
