Schroders Deploys CommciseBUY Research Valuation Platform

Schroders is deploying the CommciseBUY research valuation platform to support research and interaction evaluation, broker voting and allocations. The asset manager’s investment professionals are using the Commcise solution with both a traditional web interface and a mobile app for on-the-move evaluation of research services.

Angus Bogle, co-head, equities management at Schroders, says: “Schroders chose Commcise after a detailed selection process that was focused on ensuring we would meet our internal standards on research transparency. As a global asset manager, with investment teams consuming research in several locations, we have a demanding process to ensure we are paying appropriately for research services. Commcise was selected as it was the best match to our requirements and we received positive references from other Commcise clients.”

The implementation of CommciseBuy was undertaken by a joint Commcise and Schroders team, including integration with Schroders’ internal research management system. Paul Charie, global head of sales at Commcise, comments: “Schroders’ deep understanding of the research management business process has ensured the joint implementation team achieved system go-live in line with the timetable. Schroders input into the ongoing development of the CommciseBUY platform has been very valuable.”
