We are evolving the way in which asset managers and research providers engage over institutional research. Ahead of MiFID II research unbundling - arguably the biggest industry change since the Big Bang - we launched our RSRCHX platform in September 2015 as a regulatory solution, infusing technology into research distribution and consumption which has barely evolved since the advent of email.
By applying leading technology to the niche asset management industry, our aim is to improve workflows around investment research, whilst offsetting the burden placed on fund managers by new regulation. RSRCHX is a one-stop-shop for accessing the newly evolving paid-for research market and consuming research in compliance with global best practice.
As an aggregator, RSRCHX is a virtual library for professional clients, where they can read reports, track consumption and manage access to providers. The RSRCHX platform enables research providers to take greater control over distribution, ensuring regulatory compliance as part of a liquidity hub.
Under MiFID II, banks and brokers need to price and separately provide their research from execution services. The RSRCHX marketplace enables research providers to monetise the value of their research and helps buy side firms purchase the research they need, as and when they need it.
In an age of social media tools, mobile access and search-driven functionality, the RSRCHX functionality and user interface brings research consumption into the 21st century. Our technology is also designed to be interoperable with other best-in-breed applications. Developing on OpenFin and partnering directly with adjacent service providers, the RSRCHX platform can be used in conjunction with other solutions, helping the industry to successfully complete the sprint to the MiFID II deadline.

Co-founders Vicky Sanders and Jeremy Davies continue to run RSRCHXchange after the acquisition by Liquidnet on May 9th, 2019.
Liquidnet is a technology-driven, global institutional investment network that intelligently connects the world's investors to the world's investments. Founded in 1999, Liquidnet's network has grown to include more than 1000 institutional investors that collectively manage $33 trillion in equity and fixed income assets. The network spans 46 markets across six continents and seamlessly connects institutional brokers, investment banks, exchanges, alternative trading venues, and a growing list of data and research providers.
RSRCHXchange was founded in 2014 by an experienced industry team with a background in sell-side equity research and asset management. In anticipation of MiFID II, and with a keen awareness of the absence of technology for research distribution, co-founders Vicky Sanders and Jeremy Davies set out to provide a regulatory solution focused on improving the user experience. We believe that the way in which research is currently consumed by asset managers and distributed by research providers needs to evolve to meet the new requirements introduced by MiFID II research unbundling, to the benefit both buyers and sellers of research.
The RSRCHX platform emerged as the MiFID II aggregator and marketplace for institutional research.
By continuously investing in features and products, RSRCHXchange has attracted leading global brands amongst over 1,200 asset management firms and more than 400 research providers using the award-winning regulatory solution. The RSRCHX network continues to grow as firms strive to meet global best practice.
