From the Vision to Firmfooting

Modernize discovery and sharing of investment intelligence

The early years

ResearchPool was incorporated as soon as 2015 by the co-founders to develop a solution in relation to the expected regulatory and consumption changes in relation to investment research. The Minimum Viable Product (MVP) was made available in July 2015 for its users (and later to be clients) to test.

The later years

The firm quickly enjoyed high recognition in the market and usage from passionate analysts and users, leading to an elevation in traffic, concurrent to the increase of functionalities available on the platform, in particular

  • analytical tools for user groups to assess the interest and value of their entitlements and other research consumption
  • automation for managing the publication and distribution of reports to selected individuals, but also

The current products and service offering

  • The global modern open digital platform to discover and purchase investment intelligence
  • The MiFID 2 investment firms solution to manage spending, usage and evaluation of research through cooperative workflows
  • The providers’ technology tool to publish, interact, monetise, benchmark, and better target users
  • The portal for issuers to present its financial information and 3rd party intelligence

The values

We created ResearchPool to be the first open-access, neutral / independent, pan-European investment intelligence marketplace. We have labelled our work as #ONE as such:

Open means that we are also the most popular platform (according to Alexa rankings)

  • Content discovery available for everyone on any web browsing device at no cost
  • Boost reach through search engines page registration and social media leverage

Neutral to constitute a fair, unbiased bridge for intelligence to gather and be disseminated 

  • Equal treatment for all research buyers and providers
  • Free of conflict of interest, notably through its shareholding

European given the exemplarity of the continent to steer best practices worldwide in the investment industry

  • Actively participating in the financial regulation oversight and policy (MiFID)
  • Invested in maintaining high standards of data privacy (GDPR)

 Also

User experience focused, technology and functionality to drive long-term value for all stakeholders

Sustainability conscious with centrally stored documents, and carbon free meetings

Community friendly through collaboration-enhancing tools
