Invisage (previously VTFinTech) partners with research portal Alphametry to roll out its MiFID II compliant research evaluation services
25 Sep 2018
VTFinTech (now Invisage), the technology provider of Portfolio Management and Research Evaluation services, announced today that it has partnered with Alphametry to provide its Parity One (now Invisage) based Research Evaluation technology on the Alphametry research platform. Available now, the partnership offers asset managers a quantitative way of assessing and evaluating their research providers and content. It will enable data-driven purchase decisions so that buy-side managers can regain access to the research they need under the unbundling requirements of MiFID II regulation. It also offers valuable insights into own research for the providers.
This news comes a week after VTFinTech announced that Parity One will be available to users on the OpenFin operating system.
Alphametry, based in Paris, is a research management and discovery platform for investment professionals. Through this new partnership with VTFinTech, its equity research portal now integrates the independent research evaluation services for both providers and consumers, making the process of research subscription more informed and meaningful.
Parity One’s proprietary research evaluation methodologies, which combine quantitative and qualitative measures, create a house view for each research provider in the form of research benchmarks which track the recommendations. In addition, it provides extensive tools to simulate investment ideas based on research and exchange seamlessly between sell side and buy side. It fosters a collaborative culture across entire research value chain.
