Metzler chooses Visible Alpha’s platform for MiFID II

Metzler Asset Management has selected Visible Alpha’s ONEaccess platform for its discovering, tracking and valuing research processes to meet the compliance rules associated with the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) regulations.

ONEaccess will enable asset managers to monitor, collect and analyse interactions in one place within a given budget, as well as helping Metzler facilitate the assessment of research quality and build broker review processes using consumption and value metrics.

The platform will also help Metzler comply with obligations associated with the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), the financial regulatory authority in Germany.

Karina Limburg, senior sales consultant at Visible Alpha, said: “We are very excited to add Metzler Asset Management to our roster of asset managers leveraging the ONEaccess platform.”

She added: “While many of our clients implement the ONEaccess platform to meet MiFID II compliance obligations, the research tracking and valuation functionality enables firms to implement best practice processes for managing their research relationships and businesses over the long term.”
