数据分析平台Visible Alpha获千万融资,高盛领投

以前,投资银行或经纪商通常会免费提供各类研究报告,并以此作为吸引基金经理与其进行交易的一种措施。

2018年伊始,MiFID新规正式生效。按照文件要求,基金经理必须支付费用购买研究报告,因此不少基金公司也相应削减了研究报告购买支出。

因此,为了保证自己的研究能够脱颖而出并且长期保持出版频率,几家大型银行将目标锁定了一家名为Visible Alpha的监管科技创企身上。

昨日,Visible Alpha宣布获得一笔总额3800万美元的投资。本次投资由高盛领投,桑坦德、法国巴黎银行、麦格理集团、加拿大皇家银行和富国银行跟投。

Visible Alpha由美国银行、花旗、杰富瑞、摩根士丹利和瑞士银行共同创立,在第二个金融工具市场指令(MiFID II)之后正式推出。该平台利用机器学习等技术来分析和汇总分析师的数据,并为基金经理提供工具来帮助解读数据,预计未来将彻底改革基金经理、投资银行和经纪分析师的运作方式。

高盛战略投资合伙人兼主管Darren Cohen认为,Visible Alpha能够帮助企业有效“解决研究传播、权利、采购和估值相关的一系列紧迫挑战”。

其实,除了上述企业之外,也有不少技术公司针对MiFID II新规做出了相应的业务创新和调整。

比如,软件公司Rsrchxchange和Commcise就在MiFID II生效前一个月合作创建了一个研究聚合平台,而Quant Insight开始提供数据和模式驱动的宏替代研究。

A startup which aims to help analysts and fund managers cope with dreaded regulatory changes has grabbed $38m (£27m) of funding today, from a cohort of big banks led by Goldman Sachs.

Visible Alpha was launched in the run up to the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II), which is expected to radically reform the way that fund managers, investment banks and broker analysts operate.

Investment banks especially have been wondering how to make their research stand out and sustainable to produce, as Mifid's rule that fund managers must now pay for research – rather than receiving it for free as an incentive to trade with the investment bank or broker – has made many firms cut down on their research expenditure.

The answer, according to banks including Goldman Sachs, Santander, BNP Paribas, Macquarie Group, Royal Bank of Canada and Wells Fargo, is to plough investment into tech firms such as Visible Alpha which will solve the issue for them.

Visible Alpha, which was founded by Bank of America, Citi, Jefferies, Morgan Stanley and UBS, uses technology such as machine learning to analyse and bring together data from analysts and offer tools to fund managers to help interpret it.

Darren Cohen, partner and head of strategic investments at Goldman Sachs, said the business was helping firms on both sides of the research table "solve their most pressing challenges related to research dissemination, entitlements, procurement and valuation".

A number of tech firms have sprung up in reaction to Mifid II's shake-up, while others have been given a new lease of life.

Software companies Rsrchxchange and Commcise partnered a month before Mifid II's January implementation date to create a research aggregation platform, while Quant Insight launched to provide a data- and pattern-driven macro alternative to research.
