Investment Research Unbundling - Implications for the Sell-Side - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Investment Research Unbundling: Implications for the Sell-Side" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Based on Q1 and Q2 2017 interviews with global and regional investment managers, brokers, investment research providers, and vendors, this report looks at the latest call for unbundling in the European Union and its repercussions in the investment research industry and across sell-side firms.

Among the raft of legislative standards set out under the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) is a call for a clear demarcation between the purchase of research and related services and of trade execution. Investment research has traditionally been seen as a cost center for brokers, often given away to generate trade commissions. So how will global brokers adjust their business models in preparation for unbundling?

The geographic impact of MiFID II unbundling will extend well beyond the European Union, as global investment managers look to streamline their research and business operations into a consistent model across regions. Even regional investment managers that are not covered by MiFID may feel commercial and competitive pressures to comply and be compelled to adopt new best-practice standards. Sell-side firms will need to be able to offer a well-coordinated unbundling strategy for every region in which they operate.
