The investometer was designed by Pierre B Boulle in 1993 to establish a universal benchmark for the objective calibration of analyst recommendations. Between 1993 and 2001 empirical testing of the investometer continued, further developing it as a benchmark to introduce greater objectivity and transparency to analyst recommendations. Multiple market events since 2001 show that it is absolutely imperative that analysts be accountable for their recommendations, on which basis billions are invested every day. The investometer continues to be developed and tested, sometimes at the specific request of institutions and universities to investigate and corroborate its viability as a universal benchmark for the rating of stock market recommendations. We are currently looking for sponsors to carry on this important work as Pierre Boulle is very actively involved in the running of investorseurope, the stockbroker he founded in 2001.
