Broker votes have become critical for investment research firms since the implementation of MiFID II, which forbids investment managers from using their trading services payments to fund research services. These firms are watching the impact of MiFID II regulatory reforms in Europe, as they could change significantly the way buy-side firms value and pay for research.

Asset managers need to track research consumption and spending on research by fund type to allocate research budgets to sell-side research firms. And sell-side research firms need to monitor consumption of research services to focus on strategic accounts to maximize commission revenue, so they can allocate resources to maximize profitability.

Investment research firms are investing in upgrading their legacy broker votes systems to accommodate the new regulatory changes and to efficiently process and analyze each vote, thereby maximizing profitability.
