LONDON, March 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FeedStock®, a leading provider of integrated interaction tracking and analytics software, today announced its collaboration with IHS Markit® (Nasdaq: INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions, to provide an end-to-end investment research tracking, evaluation and analysis and payments tool for fund managers.
This will see the delivery of a comprehensive solution that satisfies the buy-side's need to accurately track, evaluate and pay for research, while managing inducements and trials, as required by MiFID II. FeedStock's tracking system is fully-automated and independent. Using the latest in AI and machine learning, FeedStock filters, tracks and classifies investment research-related activities across business applications and tools such as email, browsers, calendar and research platforms. IHS Markit feeds this data into their Evaluation and RPA Manager services, enabling clients to evaluate their research partners and budget and pay for research in a way that adheres to MiFID II requirements.
FeedStock and IHS Markit's collaboration will help reduce the bureaucratic burden of compliance by automating many of the processes currently being done manually at the expense of productivity and at risk of being inaccurate, inconsistent and costly.

Data from Feedstock are natural complements to our tools for evaluating research and administering research payments under MiFID." John Halloran, Executive Director, IHS Markit
