To ensure governance, disclosure and transparency standards, our recommendations, reviews, disclosures and stock rankings are written in plain English and updated quarterly. Our oath is professionalism demands uncompromising integrity and Scimitar is committed to uncompromising professionalism. Our equity research will not sacrifice quality for quantity.
Compliance with law, both in letter and in spirit, is the foundation of Scimitar's ethical standards. All personnel must respect and obey the laws and regulations of the places where we do business. Scimitar and its personnel are subject to all applicable governmental laws, rules, and regulations, including those of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and EU regulatory bodies.
