Supervisory Analyst Review Services

Supervisory Analyst (SA; series-16 qualified) review and approval has become a bottleneck for timely publication of reports and an area where costs have increased as experienced SAs have become difficult to hire and retain. In an environment where time-to-market is key, a resource needs to be available to review and process reports as and when analysts submit them. At Acuity Knowledge Partners, we provide SA services to sell-side firms. We offer several support models, including full-time and part-time support, depending on client requirements, in an effort to provide flexible yet reliable services at reasonable costs.

We, at Acuity Knowledge Partners, have been working with financial content for over 15 years. Our large Research Publishing team of Supervisory Analysts (SAs), Editors and Formatting and Publishing Specialists can review, approve and publish your reports, meeting tough deadlines in a fast-paced work environment and amid a heavy flow of content

Given our team size and experience, we are able to staff an engagement fairly quickly, need very little hand-holding and can hit the ground running on most projects.

Our Supervisory Analysts come from tier-1 sell-side firms; we understand the SA market in India

Our Editors have 10 years of editing experience, on average; most of them hold postgraduate degrees in English or Finance and have worked as journalists at reputed international news organisations or as editors at global financial services firms. Besides reviewing content for language, structure and logic, our editors understand regulatory issues, and are able to work on and iron out concerns with analysts and compliance. We, therefore, can also offer Senior Editors eligible to appear for the series-16 exam.

Our Formatting and Publishing Specialists have 12 years of experience, on average, in formatting and publishing reports and marketing material.
