NEW YORK/LONDON – Thomson Reuters, in partnership with Visible Alpha, has launched multiple joint-solutions in its flagship financial desktop Eikon that will help enable financial institutions to further manage impending MiFID II research unbundling requirements, set to be implemented January 3, 2018. These tools, complementing Eikon’s already robust research solutions, allow buy-side professionals to track corporate access and sell-side interactions, manage the research valuation process, review and vote on research provider value as well as manage inducements. All of the following capabilities will be available in Eikon.
Visible Alpha’s ONEaccess Resource Tracking application enables Eikon users to monitor, integrate and analyze their broker interactions and research consumption from research providers in an aggregated manner. By employing a proprietary process, ONEaccess Resource Tracking sources and cleans interactions data from hundreds of contributing brokers and provides transparency into what buy-side clients are consuming.
