London, 11 November 2015: RSRCHXchange, the online marketplace for institutional research, today announced the addition of OTAS Technologies (OTAS), the leading provider of market data analytics, to the ever growing community of research providers on their platform.
Launched in September 2015, the RSRCHX platform was built in consultation with asset management institutions and research providers and designed to improve upon the cumbersome legacy practices of research distribution and procurement. The platform is designed to help asset managers buy research in a more efficient, discerning and transparent way, while staying ahead of the upcoming MiFID II unbundling requirements. At the same time, RSRCHX offers research providers a smarter, more advanced distribution tool which not only expands the breadth of their reach, but also eases their administrative burden and accelerates payment terms.
OTAS provides traders and portfolio managers with the information needed to make better investment decisions, by offering market intelligence, pre-trade and trade analytics products, powered by artificial intelligence and big-data analysis. OTAS allows portfolio managers to access relevant signals and risk forecasts, enabling them to identify investment and trading opportunities and get ahead of the market when the risk landscape changes. By making their research available via the RSRCHX platform, OTAS is able to provide a wider group of asset managers with market leading insight and analysis that positively impacts their investment decision making.
Tom Doris, CEO of OTAS, said: “As a firm, we are always looking to improve our reach into the asset management community, to offer access to analysis necessary to make better investment decisions. RSRCHXchange not only helps us market our insights better, but the onboarding process ensures that the necessary compliance checks are carried out up-front, making our content instantly accessible on the RSRCHX platform once onboarded.”
Vicky Sanders, co-CEO of RSRCHXchange, commented: “We are delighted to welcome OTAS to our ever increasing universe of providers. Since launch, we have been steadily growing the number and variety of providers on our platform, seeking out unique content that will benefit our expanding list of buy-side clients. The incoming regulatory changes around unbundling bring great opportunities for asset managers to access a wider range of research, and we are thrilled to make our partners’ unique insights available to a wider audience via our platform.”
