New York, NY (PRWEB) May 08, 2015
In response to profound changes in the investment research industry, Integrity Research Associates LLC today announced the launch of a news service focused exclusively on investment research. Integrity Research, a consultancy specializing in the global investment research industry, has been tracking the industry since 2003.
“We are going through a major transformation in the way investment research is produced and consumed,” said Michael Mayhew, founder and principal of Integrity Research. “Since the 1970’s research has been bundled with trading, but now asset managers are being forced to buy research as they would any other outside service. This will shake up the industry.”
ResearchWatch is a premium news and commentary service focused exclusively on developments impacting investment research.
“We have close to ten thousand readers a month for commentary we’ve been producing since 2003,” said Sanford Bragg, editor of the new service. “Readers have been asking us for more frequent articles. In response, we’ve expanded our coverage with an emphasis on exclusive content you can’t get anywhere else.”
Exclusive content includes proprietary surveys of research market participants conducted by Integrity Research, analysis of the research-related revenues of bellwether firms, profiles of innovative providers, and breaking news on hiring, new entrants, new products, and other research industry activity.
The new ResearchWatch service also includes exclusive commentary from research industry experts such as executive recruiters, technologists, lawyers and salespeople who can provide additional insights on current industry trends.
“Even in articles we don’t originate, we try to give perspective on how the news impacts the research industry,” added Bragg. “Readers have come to rely on the ‘Our Take’ feature for Integrity’s succinct perspective on the industry.”
Integrity Research estimates that global spending on investment research exceeds $12 billion in commissions and direct payments. The firm tracks over 4,000 investment research providers globally in its proprietary database of research firms.
For a limited time, Integrity is offering a free trial to the new service. To sign up for the free trial go to http://www.integrity-research.com/free-trial/.
