From their origins in 1934 in the USA, the Argus Research Group of companies have
established themselves as one of the leading equity research and advice companies in the world.
The Argus Research Group consists of the following companies:
Argus Research Inc.
Founded in 1934, Argus Research Company was one of the first firms to provide systematic,
independent research and analysis on U.S. equities to the professional market. Using a
top-down methodology, the Argus analysts and economists continue to offer forecasts and
ratings on the U.S. economy and objective investment research, analysing hundreds of
leading blue chip companies.
Argus Investors' Counsel (AIC)
In response to client requests, Argus Investors' Counsel (AIC), a money management
division, was incorporated in 1960. AIC's primary product offering is a large-cap domestic
equity product that uses a bottom-up stock selection process. The Argus investment philosophy
rests on the belief that investment returns from the stock market will continue to reflect
the ongoing long-term expansion of the American economy.
