5i Research announces successful full launch.

KITCHENER, ON, March 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Peter Hodson, former Chairman of Sprott Asset Management LP, (SII on TSX) announces a successful first month of operations at 5i Research Inc.

5i Research has been a resounding hit with investors who are tired of conflicts-of-interest and high fees in the investment industry.

5i Research is a conflict-free, fully-independent research company covering many stocks that are not followed by Bay Street analysts. Often, the best companies—those that never need money—are ignored by the investment industry, since they don't generate massive fees for brokers.

"We are extremely encouraged by the response we've had so far", notes Peter Hodson, CEO of 5i. "We are happy to be the sole independent, conflict-free source of investment ideas for Canadian investors".
