Thomson Reuters has integrated New York-based research platform operator Visible Alpha’s ONEaccess Resource Tracking application into its Eikon data desktop to enable users to monitor and analyze broker interactions and research consumption, to help firms manage the research unbundling requirements of the upcoming MiFID II regulation.
Thomson Reuters will also offer access to Visible Alpha’s Oneaccess Broker Vote application within Eikon, which allows users to populate recommended benchmarks based on weighted interactions data to understand the value resulting from all research relationships, and to Visible Alpha’s ONEaccess Forward Calendar of corporate access events from more than 150 research providers.
