Thomson Reuters Expands Buy-Side Research Offering on Eikon with Addition of Deutsche Bank, Kepler Cheuvreux and European Securities Network’s Research

Portfolio managers and analysts can efficiently purchase and source sell-side research from specific providers 

Thomson Reuters has added sell-side research from Deutsche Bank, Kepler Cheuvreux and European Securities Network’s (ESN) to the Investment Research Marketplace (IRM) solution on its financial desktop platform Eikon, designed to enable the investment community to purchase, manage and evaluate research consumption in an effective, MiFID-II compliant, and seamless way.

Thomson Reuters IRM was launched on Eikon in March 2018 to help facilitate compliance with MiFID II research unbundling requirements, and hosts subscription-based collections of a select number of sell-side contributors.  Buy-side firms are able to purchase these research collections by contracting directly with Thomson Reuters, and then consume them via Eikon.  Any research acquired is designed to be seamlessly integrated with all Eikon research capabilities, including its flagship Advance Research Search, Search & Discover, and Watchlist Pulse apps.

Research collections can be integrated with a firm’s in-house research on Thomson Reuters Eikon along with existing real-time research collections, which currently have approximately 1,300 actively contributing providers globally.  All research access is seamless with current analyst and portfolio manager research workflows.

“Credible and relevant sell-side research has become an ever more critical investment-making factor for portfolio managers,” said Mahesh Narayan, head of portfolio management and research, Thomson Reuters. “By adding Deutsche Bank, Kepler Cheuvreux and ESN’s research to our offerings on Eikon, we are further empowering the buy-side with valuable information to help gain proprietary insight and deliver greater alpha to their clients.  We will continue to strive to add contributors to our research marketplace in response to our buy-side client needs.”

Will Jan, vice president and lead analyst at Outsell, commented: “While investors are in a position to seek out independent sources of research under the MiFID II research unbundling requirement, their need for quality content within the correct context remains critical in their decision-making.  There will undoubtedly be new research providers to capitalize on the multi-billion-dollar equity research space, many of which are not qualified or certified.  The choice of trustworthy sources, coupled with an effective method of channeling their insights to the buy-side’s research workflow, will be a key differentiator among asset managers.”

 As one of the largest aggregators of real-time research in the world, Thomson Reuters offers a robust portfolio of research-related products for both the buy-side and sell-side. In 2017, Thomson Reuters announced a series of Eikon integrations and enhancements to further align with research unbundling requirements.  Thomson Reuters also announced a partnership with Visible Alpha that introduced three joint-solutions on to Eikon to track corporate access and sell-side interactions, and a series of search functionality and research management upgrades.
