Extel - Greater Insights
Enhanced analytics, deeper insights, broader data, supports continued intellectual rigour in Europe’s leading equities survey of the competitive landscape.
London/Stockholm, nov 1st 2017
Extel, the leading provider of European rankings for the investment community, today announces the launch of a new service designed to assist all sides of the equities industry to determine value of services, benchmark against peers and understand industry best practices. This enhanced and unique service builds on the existing market-leading survey and awards, that will provide an invaluable source of intelligent data to clients, and enable them in a post-MiFID II environment to:
● Identify and champion excellence; to objectively assess the value of research advisory services.
● Evaluate the different pricing models across research providers and their services.
● Institutionalise best practice in client strategy, pricing and engagement.
As new regulations around research pricing become effective, Extel recognises that there will be unprecedented scrutiny on valuing the provision of research services, and we have adapted to meet the changing needs of our clients to provide the high value market intelligence that clients associate with the Extel brand. The core Extel Survey will remain, offering all sides of the investment community an anonymous, independent and technically efficient forum for submitting rankings and opinions on their industry relationships. The new service will extend this process to:
● Deliver the most intellectually robust and complete view of the equities value chain in Europe.
● Allow engagement throughout the year across the Sell-side, Buy-side and Corporate landscapes.
● Increase the focus on aligning client needs, service value and resourcing.
● Identify substantive providers of investment advice, with independence and transparency.
● Enable client analytics and advice to determine best practice.
● Extend Extel globally into 2019.
David Enticknap, CEO of Extel explains:
"Our legacy vision has been "Identifying Excellence" In 2018 we aim to build upon this vision to become the most robust, quantifiable stamp of quality and best practise through providing value and insight to the Sell-side, Buy-side and Corporates. As one of the few independent data providers to work with all parties across the institutional value chain, we are perfectly positioned to help the Sell-side focus on resource management, the Buy-side to audit and recognise the true providers of substantive research, and Corporate Investor Relations to understand which are the best research providers"
