As the Investment Research business grapples with a structural contraction in cash equities volumes, disruptions from MiFID II and other regulations, the sell side is rethinking how to manage costs of producing research without compromising on the quality of content that reaches investors.

Research Publishing costs represent a sizeable portion of the cost to run a high-quality global sell-side research team. The Research Publishing workflow also has its own unique set of operational challenges in terms of peaks and troughs.

The webinar presents our experience in performing offshore Supervisory Analyst review for global sell-side research teams. We will take you through some of our unique experiences, and present best practices on how to set up and run a world-class Research Publishing team.

Key Takeaways
  • How are global sell side firms leveraging offshore support for their Research Publishing needs

  • Best practices in setting up a world-class Research Publishing team

  • Case studies on value delivered to sell side research teams
