    Defining Best Practice in Research Procurement

    The investment research industry has undergone a revolution in Europe. Many changes have been good for market efficiency but asset managers also point to negative consequences for the end investor and the industry. How can the US market benefit from the positive trends while ensuring it avoids the pitfalls? Will a global standard of best practice emerge? Now that some US firms have decided to pay for research themselves will we see the shift that happened in Europe in 2017, or has the SEC’s mixed messaging ensured that unbundling and transparency are enough?

    400 buy and sellside delegates joined us in both New York in June 2019 and London in November 2019 for a day of high quality debate and analysis. We return to New York to focus on best practices for the buy and sellside – and what the American end investor should make of it all. If US-based asset managers adopt a transparent approach to research procurement will they avoid the European shift to paying for research out of their own resources?

    Join us on the 10th June at the Metropolitan Club, New York, to hear industry leaders from the US and Europe discuss the direction and pace of change for the US investment research industry. Panels will cover balancing costs and the need for quality research, research valuation and budgeting, the changes in providers’ business models and their products, corporate access, and operational best practices.
