VTFinTech partners with Alphametry for new MiFID II solution

VTFinTech has partnered with research portal Alphametry to launch its MiFID compliant research evaluation services.

The company, which provides of portfolio management and research evaluation services, said it will provide its Parity One based Research Evaluation technology on the Alphametry research platform.

Through the new partnership asset managers will gain a quantitative way of assessing and evaluating their research providers and content. It will also enable data-driven purchase decisions so that buy-side managers can regain access to the research they need under the unbundling requirements of MiFID II regulation.

Based in London, VTFinTech’s Parity One combines quantitative and qualitative measures to create a house view for each research provider in the form of research benchmarks which track the recommendations. In addition, it also provides tools to simulate investment ideas based on research and exchange seamlessly between sell side and buy side.

Fabrice Bouland, CEO of Alphametry, said: “This partnership is the key to moving the research market forward and giving the investment managers access to the research which has been lost under MIFID II since the start of the year.

“VTFinTech’s Parity One Research seamlessly integrates with Alphametry and offers our clients, an independent and consistent way to evaluate the research. Most of the research on our platform is fundamental and we believe that the analysis is as important as the stock recommendation itself. Parity One understands this and considers the fundamental analysis in its evaluation which bodes really well with our research provider community.”

Paris-based Alphametry is a research management and discovery platform for investment professionals. Through the new partnership with VTFinTech, its equity research portal now integrates the independent research evaluation services for both providers and consumers, making the process of research subscription more informed and meaningful.
