A2 launches Broker Vote 2.0 – the MiFID II Solution
NEW YORK, July 18, 2016
A2 Access, a Dealogic-owned company, is proud to announce the release of its resource consumption tracking and broker vote tools. These new features solidify A2’s position as the industry leader in the sellside content aggregation space.
Investment firms and their sellside partners require simple, effective systems that allow them to record and report on resource consumption compliantly. A2 and Dealogic offer this fully integrated and seamless connection.
- A2 Tracking maintains a detailed repository of all relevant services provided to investors by sellside partners.
- A2 Broker Vote allows for resource consumption-based voting to help clarify the appropriate allocation of budget and commission dollars for the period.
These are customizable, scalable solutions that work for institutions of any size or strategy. “The progress of A2 in client growth and product releases continues to impress us,” Tom Fleming, CEO of Dealogic, said. “It is no wonder they have more than 300 clients and are the dominant player in the space.”
Baker Burleson, Founder & Portfolio Manager at Banbury Partners, noted, “A2 is a must-have product for anyone in investment management,” while Mark Allan, Partner & Head Trader at Scopia Capital, added, “A2 efficiently aggregates our sellside touchpoints in a logical manner. It has improved our ability to analyze consumption data.”
More than 80,000 of the 250,000 research activities logged in A2 Tracking have been submitted by A2’s sellside partners for 50+ hedge fund clients. These investment firms leverage the dataset as the foundation for a robust broker vote, which provides voters with the context of their resource consumption for the period, creating transparency with sellside partners for the first time.
