Research Management Tools

The most efficient way to manage your firm in MiFID II and beyond

For most firms, 2017 was a year filled with preparation for the new MiFID II regulations...

Now, we move to a new focus: implementation and management. Visible Alpha has evolved to keep pace with this change. In addition to the research resource tracking, budgeting and evaluation tools launched last year, we now offer a comprehensive solution for managing contracts, trials and inducements. All of this is connected to our existing offering so that managing your provider relationships in this complex regulatory environment is simple.
