Quant Insight Adds Macro Research to RSRCHX Platform

Quant Insight (QI) has made its research available on the RSRCHX platform, a purpose-built aggregator and marketplace for institutional research that allows portfolio managers to buy reports in compliance with Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) research rules.

QI came to market in January 2017 and offers macro research that provides quantitative analysis and actionable investment ideas to hedge funds, asset managers, asset allocators, pension funds and wealth managers. Its solution combines high-quality data, proprietary algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) driven machine learning models to help investors make better investment decisions.

Mahmood Noorani, founder of QI, says: “Ultimately, we offer a fact-based, smarter approach in the pursuit of alpha and the ability to remain agile in a competitive environment.”

The QI platform analyses data sets from the 6,000 securities across major asset classes revealing macro factors driving asset prices and predicting regime changes ahead of the market. The QI analytics tool enables portfolio managers and asset allocators to identify actionable trade ideas and create bespoke hedging strategies designed to enhance execution performance.

The RSRCHXchange platform allows asset management firms to read, purchase and monitor research services from banks, brokers and boutique providers. Research providers can deliver reports to existing clients in a compliant way and make use of the marketplace to reach new customers and monetise research. The platform has a user base of over 1,100 buyside firms and more than 250 research providers.

Jeremy Davies, co-founder of RSRCHXchange, says: “We are always looking to work with innovative research providers that are using new approaches and datasets. QI’s macro analysis ideas are a prime example of new research which is additive and complementary to the more traditional forms of research already being used by our asset manager clients.”
