ResearchPool helps institutional investors to discover and easily manage relevant external and internal research, models and market intelligence using advanced search features and personalized feeds, tags and email alerts.

ResearchPool has announced it will provide access to its solutions for investment research, content discovery, and management to IHS Markit’s customers, particularly institutional investors that need to manage sell-side and independent research.

The strategic partnership was developed as part of the shared vision to build a leading investment research community. IHS Markit is enabling institutional investors and research providers to connect to ResearchPool’s cloud-based platform.

The platform currently hosts over 2 million pieces of award-winning investment research from some 400 global providers and a community of over 20,000 registered users.

ResearchPool helps institutional investors to quickly discover and easily manage relevant external and internal research, models and market intelligence using advanced search features and personalized feeds, tags and email alerts.

IHS Markit’s customers can also access ResearchPool’s integrated calendar and interactions management tool that creates a historical record of activity with corporates and the sell-side.

Pedro Fernandes, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer was Head of European ETPs and Structured Products at NYSE before founding ResearchPool in 2015. He commented: “Institutional investors are accelerating operational change through rapid adoption of cloud-based technology to deliver greater efficiencies and innovation to clients.

Research and other insights can be uploaded to the ResearchPool platform as a way to extend distribution reach to new investors and markets. Existing ResearchPool institutional investor users will benefit from access to additional research content and a wider range of providers.

Chris Sztam, SVP & Head of the Global Markets Group at IHS Markit, said: “Over the past few years, regulatory changes, emerging distribution tools and the need for unique and differentiated access have changed how consumers and providers of content interact. The growing demand for innovation is clear, and our collaborations with ResearchPool and other firms will advance a world-class community to meet the diverse needs of the market.”

“Through its partnership with IHS Markit, ResearchPool will enable IHS Markit’s institutional investor and research provider clients to access a range of digital tools that will streamline research workflows whilst supercharging access to information.”
