ResearchPool expands access for buy-side ahead of unbundling

ResearchPool has teamed up with ADDFIN to expand access to investment research for the buy-side.

ResearchPool has teamed up with ADDFIN to expand its buy-side client base ahead of MiFID II and unbundling requirements.

Both firms have combined their web-based information and transaction platform and investment research services, providing ADDFIN’s buy-side community with access to ResearchPool’s investment research.

The agreement is effective immediately to users of ADDFINWEALTH Professional. Investors will gain access to over 160 research providers and 300,000 research papers available through ResearchPool.

The service is a new method of accessing research and was developed in response to MiFID II’s unbundling rules, set to come into force on 3 January 2018.

Pedro Fernandes, co-founder and CEO of ResearchPool, commented: “Access to all categories of investment research in a transparent and efficient way, meets the ADDFIN’s objective to give wealth managers the opportunity to process within each decision-making step with the best financial industry standard.”

Peter Hegglin, CEO at ADDFIN, added the partnership illustrates “our innovative and Fintech approach to meet the needs of professional investor community.”
