Negotiating the value of equity research for the post MiFID II regime...

Friday, 6 October 2017, 7:10 pm

Betaville hears there are some interesting negotiating tactics being used by brokers ahead of the implementation of MiFID II regulations in the New Year.

Most market participants are aware of the upcoming rule changes which will force equity research departments to charge investor clients directly for their "research". And this is causing all sorts of confusion but about how much research, in particular "equity research", is really worth to investors.

One buysider tells Betaville that he is has been quoted prices of between £150,000 to £30,000 for access to investment banks' equity research.

Apparently, other broking firms have just asked directly: "just tell me what you think it's worth".

That doesn't bode well.....
