The article reports that HSBC Bank has unveiled a new nonratings-based research platform. HSBC's new research differs sharply from what is traditionally on offer from the wirehouses. The firm offers no buy or sell ratings and is studiously trying to avoid so-called maintenance research, which most of Wall Street diligently pumps out every quarter in response to corporate earnings announcements. Wall Street's immediate curiosity is not how clients will react to the research, but why HSBC is entering the research game in any form of all the sort of question an analyst might ask.
