Finding new ways of consuming and evaluating investment research
MiFID II has forced investment managers all over the globe to take a closer look at their research provider relationships, including how they consume, track, value and pay for research. Asset managers want to ensure they are paying for the most impactful research to their investment process, and while they continue to rely on comprehensive usage and consumption data from providers, they are also looking for new ways of consuming and evaluating the research they receive. It’s no longer simply about the quantity of content consumed, but about the quality of that research, model or corporate access event.
This paper discusses how asset managers are surfacing the information that is most relevant and important to them while reducing the amount of incoming and consumed research that isn’t contributing to investment ideas.
