Commcise And RSRCHXchange Partner For Research

Together, the RSRCHXchange and Commcise systems provide asset managers with an end-to-end research workflow solution accessed via a secure buy-side controlled portal. Functionality includes research discovery and procurement, content entitlement management, consumption tracking across 500+ research providers, bottom-up research valuation and fund level research accounting. Users can budget for research by desk/strategy and fund level, value research, and track research funding with integrated support for RPA and P&L payments. Research accounting can now be administered at Fund level, with detailed MIFID II ex-ante and ex-post reporting

The collaboration allows research consumption statistics to be passed from the RSRCHX platform to Commcise via an API. Commcise makes this readership and procurement data from RSRCHX available alongside all other sell-side and buy-side contributed data in a MiFID II transparent and audited manner. Commcise manages the allocation of all research costs to clients using a proprietary fair allocation algorithm to allow asset managers to evidence that investors are benefiting from the research that has been consumed.

Commcise Managing Director Amrish Ganatra said: “We are delighted to partner with RSRCHXchange to provide our customers with access to high quality readership data from a broker-neutral, independent and un-conflicted research platform. The industry has long had a need for collaborations that bring together market leading providers in a way that is intuitive for the buy-side and sell-side”

RSRCHXchange Co-CEO Jeremy Davies commented: “We strongly believe a collaborative approach is the most comprehensive and efficient way not only to get ahead of MiFID II research unbundling but also to operate a research-led investment process. Partnerships ensure we remain at the forefront of financial technology innovation and provide the best possible service to clients by offering connections to other best-in-breed solution providers.”
