Research firms partner up for easier purchase

RSRCHXchange has partnered up with Substantive Research to make it easier for asset managers to access and purchase macro investment research.

Substantive Research, an independent curator of investment research, issues daily briefings highlighting the latest macro research. These reports will now be linked directly to the RSRCHXchange research marketplace.

Any reports from RSRCHX research providers will also include a link to RSRCHX, allowing portfolio managers to immediately preview and purchase the report in a manner fully compliant with research unbundling rules under the Market in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II.

The partnership is intended to close the gap between discovering new research and purchasing it. Substantive Research’s reports summarise five macroeconomic, allocation and strategy research publications, driving traffic towards the research providers themselves.

They offer independent articles and research notes, ranked by an internal methodology and tailored to portfolio managers’ priorities and preferences, drawing from more than 40 banks and 50 independent research providers.

Mike Carrodus, CEO and founder of Substantive Research, said: “Our focus has always been to drive our asset and portfolio manager community to the highest quality research available from banks and independent providers. Our partnership with RSRCHXchange will now ensure that Substantive’s clients can immediately access, procure and pay for that research in a MiFID II-compliant and unbundled way.”

Vicky Sanders, co-founder of RSRCHXchange, added: “We are delighted to partner with Substantive Research and jointly continue to expand the universe of buy-side firms that can access and procure research in a MiFID II-compliant way.”

“While Substantive directs investors to the best macroeconomic research, RSRCHX complements this offering by aggregating these reports on our platform, enabling fund managers to access their research in one place and seamlessly purchase new reports and subscriptions. This partnership further increases our reach and we look forward to working with Substantive and their expanding customer base in the future.”
