A platform called ERIC
March 20, 2017

ERIC (Electronic Research Interchange), the marketplace for institutional investment research, has released the latest iteration of its platform and launched a research management dashboard which it says enables asset managers to better identify the worth of the research consumed within their organization.

The redesign is described as part of the ongoing development of the ERIC platform, in consultation with the buy-side, and addresses the concerns expressed by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) in its recent review of asset managers' use of dealing commission. The FCA identified that many managers could not attribute a cost to substantive research, record broker interractions or explain the rational for research commission expenditure decisions.

The new ERIC delivers greater capacity for evaluating and reporting on the research consumed by its buy-side participants, whether consumed via the platform or outwith.
