The Research Alliance connects buy-side managers with niche IRPs

Since 2006, the Research Alliance has provided over 300 buy-side firms, including hedge funds, mutual funds, family offices, and private equity firms with primary independent research.

The proprietary selection process of the Research Alliance sifts through the 1000+ independent research providers globally to identify the firms producing research not found on the sell-side.

Only a handful of providers are granted membership in the Research Alliance.

Selection Criteria Include:
  • Produce proprietary, primary research
  • Well-differentiated from sell-side peers
  • Conflict-free (no investment banking or underwriting, no trading desk, no money management arm)
  • Proven track record, 10+ years
  • Clearly defined expertise
  • Actionable investment recommendations—long and short
  • Meet compliance standards

“Access to independent research from the Research Alliance provided me with key data I was not aware of, allowing me to exit a large position and avoid a significant loss.”
