Frankfurt-based Metzler Asset Management has rolled out New York-based research platform vendor Visible Alpha and their ONEaccess Platform to identify, monitor and value investment research for compliance with Mifid II’s research components.

By using Visible Alpha’s ONEaccess Forward Calendar, Resource Tracking and Broker Vote applications, Metzler’s team of about 25 investment professionals will be able to identify corporate access events and create custom valuation frameworks governing their interactions with brokers and research providers.

“In preparing to comply with Mifid II regulations, we evaluated a number of vendors with a focus on data integrity and ease of use for our investment professionals. The ONEaccess Platform allows us to source interactions data directly from our research provider relationships and to track and value those interactions in one seamless workflow,” says Thorsten Koeble, head of Mifid II management at Metzler Asset Management in a statement.
