The US arm of agency brokerage Instinet has added three new research providers to Instinet Access, a programme designed to increase sales, marketing and account coverage for companies providing research to the broker’s institutional client base.
The independent third-party research firms are: Alternative Energy Investing, which is focused on energy technology and renewable fuels; Public Insight, a specialist in helping institutional investors evaluate the impact of regulation and policy at federal, state and local level in the US and in key international markets; and Trusted Sources, which looks at the investment implications of public policy in the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) economies.
Instinet launched its Access programme in 2004 and now has seven research providers signed up to the service.
“We’re pleased to expand the Instinet Access roster through the addition of these three high-quality providers focusing, respectively, on alternative energy, US public policy and emerging markets, which are three of today’s most sought after research coverage areas,” said Jonathan Kellner, president of Instinet, in a statement. “The buy-side’s appetite for independent research has never been greater, and as such we view our research partners as key to Instinet’s strategic growth and development.”
