âOver the years, TheMarkets.com has continually received requests from brokers to take advantage of our expansive research distribution network. The value we can deliver as an established and fast -growing research platform has been very compelling to brokers looking to have a wide reach while maintaining control and transparency in the distribution process. The demand among brokers to participate is even greater than we had previously expected,â said Amy Kadomatsu, Chief Product Officer of TheMarkets.com.
Brokers that have signed on so far include BMO Capital Markets, Exane BNP Paribas, FBR Capital Markets*, ING, Thomas Weisel Partners, and UniCredit, among many others. Contributing brokers have access to a buy-side audience that includes over 2000 asset managers, representing 21 of the 25 largest U.S. asset managers, 38 of the top 50 European asset managers, and 75 of the top 100 hedge funds.
âOur mandate at TheMarkets.com has always been to provide a research-centric platform that enables the buy-side to get the most out of research in the least amount of timeâand the sell-side to protect the value of that research through our industry-pioneering research delivery protocols. By building our own research and estimates offering, weâre excited to be extending these benefits to a broker audience that has grown 15-fold in the past three months,â said Kadomatsu.
