PSQ Analytics, a research service created to boost the profile of smaller UK companies, has relaunched.

The service was originally set up by the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in 2009 with three independent research partners – Argus Research, Independent International Investment Research and Pipal Research – but stopped producing reports last year.

Argus has now taken control of the project and will be its sole provider of research. The firm has set up a new website for PSQ Analytics, offering basic information on all companies listed on the LSE’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM).

Every company on AIM has a profile featuring a business summary, share price performance, investor relations information and management team details, explains Amarit Dhaliwal, sales manager at PSQ Analytics, in an email.

Companies have the option to pay PSQ Analytics for more in-depth and timely information, either on a twice-yearly or quarterly basis, depending on the product.

The flagship product – PSQ City Report – provides companies with four research reports a year that include management team input and analyst commentary. All research produced by PSQ Analytics will be distributed free to investors.

Marcus Stuttard, head of AIM, in a statement welcomes the return of PSQ Analytics.

‘We are hugely supportive of financial education and believe it is critical that investors have access to comprehensive information and the opportunity to engage constructively with the market, which in turn will help further boost liquidity,’ he says.

‘London Stock Exchange Group is committed to supporting the SME community and tools such as PSQ Analytics will help investors to make informed decisions.’
