ResearchPool is a UK incorporated company that operates an online aggregation platform and marketplace for financial research and market commentary on a wide range of European and international markets. We provide both premium and free reports from a broad spectrum of research providers, from independent research providers to brokers.
In the same way that open marketplaces helped Amazon revolutionise e-commerce, or Apple music distribution, ResearchPool connects a variety of specialist research providers cross-border with the long tail of research consumers.
Providing easy access to high-quality financial research
We created ResearchPool to be the first open-access, pan-European marketplace for direct access to financial markets research and market commentary.
Our approach to financial research benefits consumers, research providers and the companies researched:
By unbundling the cost of research from the dealing commission, we expect the coming Mifid II regulations to give investors more freedom of choice, increasing demand for value added research and quality market commentary, which in turn will shift power from the providers to the research consumer. ResearchPool’s platform is intended to be the most agile and adaptive platform for market information. ResearchPool hopes to democratise access and improve information asymmetry.
It all started with our vision that Finance/Capital Markets should be fairer, more transparent and democratic.
After working for leading Global Exchanges for most of their careers, budding entrepreneurs James Woodley and Pedro Fernandes recognised that there are gaps in the research marketplace that can be filled by combining the best practices of e-commerce and exchanges.
"We saw first-hand the information asymmetry that results from inefficient research production and distribution. By creating an open and transparent financial research marketplace utilising e-commerce technology and aggregation, we deeply believe that supply and demand for research can be better matched, contributing to less overproduction on large caps and more coverage on SMEs."
For SMEs distribution is king: a significant proportion of investment and trading in SMEs, micro caps and nano caps is from domestic private investors and smaller institutions, the majority of whom do not have access to the same amounts of research that large asset managers do, with multiple broker relationships and deeper pockets to buy research. The importance of research production on trading liquidity, particularly for smaller companies means that ResearchPool is closing this competitive disadvantage, democratising access to research, particularly cross-border in Europe.
