Infront has partnered with RSRCHXchange to provide Infront clients with a seamless integration between global real-time market information and research published on RSRCHX.
RSRCHX is leading portal for purchasing, consuming and managing institutional research, and enables asset managers to meet the requirements of MiFID II research unbundling and maximise value from research budgets.
Built and designed by an experienced capital markets team in consultation with asset management institutions and research providers, the RSRCHX platform enables asset management firms to consume, track and evaluate research services across all research counterparties in a more efficient, discerning and transparent way.
RSRCHX is for regulated institutional investors, and there are currently over 1000 asset managers signed up. Clients include a mix of hedge fund and long only institutions with AUM ranging from $100m to over $1trn in AUM. The five largest clients manage over $2.5trn in AUM. Its research providers have grown in scale and complexity; banks and brokers now represent a quarter of the providers on RSRCHX.
Under MiFID II regulation on Research Unbundling, investment firms need to put in place systems to properly manage, evaluate and pay for the research they use to inform their investment decisions. Free research can no longer be received. Research consumption, ratings and payments should be auditable and defensible. RSRCHX has the tools you need to be compliant.
Over 200 research providers use RSRCHX. They include banks, regional brokers and independent providers, covering all geographies and asset classes. RSRCHXchange is also actively adding providers from client requests.
RSRCHX is connected with all the major CSA and RPA managers. It can also self invoice funds for those paying for research from a P&L and manage hard dollar payments. RSRCHXchange electronically invoice your chosen payment administrator automatically when research is purchased.
