The data vendor has incorporated the Search and Discovery (S&D) solution, a comprehensive service helping firms to process huge volumes of data and tackle the challenges of data quality and consistency. It allows its users to streamline their necessary business processes by quickly drilling into multiple and disparate sources of unstructured text such as news, filings, transcripts, research, both to reduce cost and to gain time and resource efficiencies.

The growing interest in content-based solutions that allows users to manage their research consumption in compliance with MiFID II has encouraged Thomson Reuters to integrate StarMine’s analysis toolset. StarMine’s methodology and data objectively measures the analyst performance based on the returns of their buy/sell recommendations and the accuracy of their earnings estimates.

These additions are part of a series of research solutions that Thomson Reuters continues to release in 2017 through new products and third-party partnerships. MiFID’s research regulations will bring profound changes in the research segment of financial services, fueling the need for new products to be in place so that institutions can manage these changes.

Mahesh Narayan, head of portfolio management and research, Thomson Reuters commented: “Buy-side professionals have been contending with information overload for a long time, and a research process that remains largely manual can hinder the ability to make fast investment decisions and achieve an advantage over competitors. With MiFID II coming into force, effective research management will be crucial. By improving search functionality and the storage of research on Eikon, we are empowering the buy-side with the tools they need to meet their evolving business needs.”
