Invisage partners with Linedata enabling clients to track investment research performance and reduce costs under MiFID II
05 Aug 2020
Invisage, the award-winning investment research analytics firm, today announced a new partnership with Linedata (Euronext Paris: LIN), a global provider of credit and asset management technology, data and services.
Linedata’s global fund manager clients can now track the performance of research using Invisage’s solution, helping reduce spend on research under MiFID II rules and inform investment strategy to better generate alpha.
Under MiFID II rules requiring fund managers to ‘unbundle’ investment research costs, budgets set aside by firms for research have fallen by 20%-30% according to the FCA in efforts to reduce costs*. This partnership will help Linedata’s clients to identify and pay only for research that delivers the most value.
Invisage uses advanced data-analytics, natural language programming and artificial intelligence to extract alpha from research content while empowering investment decision-making by pooling relevant insights and forming consensus across asset classes. It compares effectiveness across different providers, bringing various forms of research into a single platform for enhanced visibility.
Vishnu Thurpati, CEO of Invisage, commented:
“As one of the biggest technology solutions providers for global investment firms, Linedata is a great partner to help Invisage reach a comprehensive level of hedge funds and asset managers. We believe Invisage complements Linedata’s existing offers and will deliver cost-savings and enhanced portfolio performance for their clients.”
Ed Gouldstone, COO Northern Europe Asset Management at Linedata commented:
“Invisage has the potential to be a game changer for the investment research industry by bringing objectivity and transparency across the research value chain. The platform will help asset managers, investment banks, and the larger research community to identify and take advantage of unique investment ideas and enhance their collaboration. In today’s tumultuous market environment, a tool like Invisage can offer tremendous value to active managers and the research firms that support them.”
