Important Notice for Markit Hub Users

On 29 October 2021, IHS Markit retired the Markit Hub platform.  The Markit Hub website is now inactive and all users are now being redirected to ResearchPool.

Transition to ResearchPool

In April 2021, ResearchPool and IHS Markit announced a strategic collaboration to give Markit Hub customers access to ResearchPool’s advanced solutions for investment research, content discovery and interactions management.

Markit Hub customers have been invited to connect to the ResearchPool community and benefit from ResearchPool’s solutions.

Markit Hub users will have free access to ResearchPool’s Basic Account for professionals for the duration of the transition period. The transition timetable can be found below.

Markit Hub Research Provider Update

ResearchPool continues to engage with Markit Hub research providers with the aim of onboarding them to our platform. BNP Paribas, UBS, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Lucror Analytics, and Morningstar are now live and have either accepted, or are in the process of accepting, entitlement requests.

Barclays are currently onboarding and we anticipate they will be able to offer research access in May 2022.

Please note: over 75 providers currently provide entitlement access on ResearchPool, including: Nomura, ING, Kepler Cheuvreux, Raymond James, Nordea, Numis and Redburn. A full list is available here.
