ResearchPool Limited , a Fintech marketplace for Financial Research, is excited to announce today that Hudson & Cie, a leading African broker, has become a provider of research and market commentary on its innovative online aggregation platform. This has happened thanks to our local partner, IFC Consulting, a Fintech company specialised in collecting and providing financial data and technology in African countries.
Hudson, an integrated securities firm, is a member of the West Africa regional stock exchange (BRVM) and offers a large array of financial services including brokerage, custody, sell-side research, investment management, investment banking and advisory and issuer services. Hudson’s African and International client base includes governments, financial institutions, high net worth individuals, and corporate clients from various industries.
ResearchPool.com makes reports, including the ones of Hudson & Cie, openly available to investors, separate from any trading volumes, trading commissions or any other type of trading arrangements. By providing unbundled research through an open marketplace with transparent pricing,
ResearchPool is the first to offer a solution that reflects the principles embedded in MiFIDII regulatory changes. Reports can be purchased on a “pay-as-you-go” basis or via professional subscriptions via ResearchPool’s user-friendly and secure platform.
Pedro Fernandes, Co-Founder and Director of ResearchPool, said: “The onboarding of Hudson & Cie is a clear example of how ResearchPool is transforming the way global investors get access to research on fast growing regions and countries. Specialised content, previously perceived by most investors as hard to access or even nonexistent, is now easily accessible online thanks to ResearchPool. ResearchPool offers companies from emerging and frontier markets a strong increase in their potential visibility and interest from international investors.
Hudson & Cie CEO, Kadi FADIKA-COULIBALY, stated that: “ResearchPool is an innovative service designed to provide quick and easy access to Research and market commentary. We view IFC Consulting – our local ResearchPool’s representative and the ResearchPool platform, as important partners as we expand our report distribution to raise the visibility of our covered companies and domestic market. We are excited to join ResearchPool as their platform reflects our own commitment to expose our domestic companies and market to more and better international investment.”
