Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund

Inom de investmentbanker som idag erbjuder heltäckande tjänster inom värdepappershandel och företagsrelaterade finanstjänster uppstår konflikter som grundar sig på vems intresse som kommer i första hand. I denna process har finansanalytikern en central roll där det finns en risk att hamna i en intressekonflikt med corporate finance avdelningen. Finansanalytikerns oberoende är viktigt då analyserna har påverkan på kursbildningen på värdepappersmarknaden.

Syfte

Syftet med denna kandidatuppsats är att beskriva hur ett antal svenska investmentbanker arbetar för att främja finansanalytikerns oberoende i sin yrkesroll. För att tydliggöra oberoendet kommer intressekonflikten mellan analysavdelningen och corporate finance avdelningen att beskrivas då problematiken kring finansanalytikerns oberoende här är som tydligast.

Metod

En kvalitativ ansats har valt för att uppfylla uppsatsens syfte. Tre personliga djupintervjuer genomfördes med investmentbanker och Finansinspektionen. Ytterligare en telefonintervju genomfördes med ett analyshus som marknadsför sig som oberoende. Detta gav sammanlagt tre olika perspektiv på problemet.

Slutsats

Investmentbankerna främjar finansanalytikerns oberoende genom att skapa förutsättningar för att denne ska kunna ha en hög integritet i sin yrkesroll. Dessa förutsättningar skapas genom att följa lagen och de rekommendationer som Finansinspektionen ger. Tillsammans med interna regler och incitament stärks finansanalytikerns oberoende gentemot corporate finance avdelningen.

Background

Within today’s full-service investment banks conflicts of interest related to who’s interest that comes first appears. Within this process the equity researcher has a fundamental profession and is exposed to conflicts of interest mainly towards the corporate finance department. The equity researcher’s independence is of importance since the analyses have impact on the determination of prices on the securities market.

Purpose

The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to describe how a number of Swedish investment banks operate to promote independence in the equity researcher’s profession. To describe the independence, conflicts of interest between the equity research department and the corporate finance department will be described. This situation chosen because of the problematic situation concerning the equity researcher’s independence that appears.

Method

A qualitative approach has been chosen to fulfil the purpose of the bachelor thesis. Three personal in-depth interviews have been conducted with investment banks as well as the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. One additional telephone interview was conducted with a company promoting itself as an independent equity researcher. This together gave us three different perspectives of the problem.

Conclusion

The investment banks promote the equity researcher’s independence by creating conditions to maintain a high integrity in their profession. These conditions are created by following the law and the recommendations given by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. Together with internal rules and incentives, the equity researcher’s independence towards corporate finance will strengthen.
