Forward View Selected as StockViews Affiliate Partner

Collaboration with StockViews announced as old Wall Street business model breaks down


Clintwood, VA, September 1st, 2015 — Forward View is pleased to announce its new partnership with StockViews, a leader in crowdsourced equity research. A total of four StockViews affiliates will be brought aboard, thus making Forward View a member of a trulyselect group. Thomas Beevers, CEO of StockViews, stated, “We’re excited to welcome Forward View as a partner on the StockViews Affiliate Network. We have been highly impressed with the quality of their research and depth of analysis. Forward View represents a new breed of equity research firm—independent, analytical and 100% focused on generating great ideas. We look forward to working closely with the team at Forward View to disrupt the established sell-side research industry.”

Forward View research will be regularly published on the StockViews platform, including the type of analyses previously available only to Wall Street and large institutional investors. Instead of limiting research access to a handful of global corporations and hedge funds, Forward View is dedicated to serving financial advisors, family offices and smaller asset managers. Nathan Yates, the owner of Forward View, noted, “I’m glad we’re joining the StockViews Affiliate Network because our firms share the goal of upending the traditional sell-side business model. We believe there’s an unmet need for quality investment research among small and medium asset managers in the U.S. and Europe, and this collaboration enhances our ability to serve this market. Our securities analysis methodology isn’t influenced by a desire to sell any investment banking or trading services, so our clients can have confidence in the value of our unbiased reports.”

This partnership is effective immediately and provides long-term value to both Forward View and StockViews. The two companies will engage in joint marketing and public relations efforts, both online and offline. “We honestly can’t imagine a better partner for our research services than StockViews,” concluded Yates.

Nathan Yates has been fascinated by technology and finance since he was young. He was the kid devouring the business section of the newspaper (remember those?) while others read everything else. Nathan believes that the American economy is built from the bottom-up, meaning that small businesses and local nonprofits are the foundation of our nation's success. These organizations are the lifeblood of towns and cities across the U.S. Unfortunately, most consulting firms overlook companies or organizations that don't have eight-figure budgets. Nathan thought Forward View Consulting should be different. And we are. As Lead Consultant, Nathan works with each client to deliver only the best financial and/or website development services. Nathan's years of web design experience and his business degrees ensure that professional expertise is brought to each project. Our network of contacts can offer additional specialized guidance if needed. Before creating Forward View Consulting, Nathan worked for an independent equity research firm as a Research Associate covering the industrial and energy sectors. This work involved preparing quarterly 15-40 page reports on multi-billion dollar corporations along with timely analysis of M&A activity and industry-wide news. He also managed research distribution and the company's online presence. Nathan also spent a summer serving as a local financial adviser's Research Intern. Nathan earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, graduating summa cum laude. He then earned a Master's degree in Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, where he was named the Outstanding Student in his particular concentration.
