Who does FRS work with?

FRS works exclusively with financial research firms that produce the highest quality, unbiased, independent research on the financial markets. We work with firms that focus on a particular industry segment or specialize in a particular investment methodology. We target firms whose research provides actionable investment recommendations.

Does FRS have an established network in the financial industry?

FRS has forged relationships with hundreds of accounts in the financial sector across the US, Europe, and beyond. These relationships open doors for our research clients with some of the world’s largest buy-side firms.

Using our database of over 70,000 CIOs, portfolio managers, and analysts, our proprietary sales process penetrates the new accounts that have the greatest need for your specialized research content.

FRS has also established CSA’s (Commission Sharing Arrangements) with Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, CSFB, J.P. Morgan, Merrill Lynch, Instinet, and dozens of smaller soft dollar brokers to facilitate payment transactions for our clients.

What does FRS require from the research firm?

We require the following:

Why does FRS need access to our research?

Institutional money managers rely on FRS to provide the best quality investment research possible. Access to your research product will allow us to ensure that it meets quality standards. Reviewing your reports before starting your marketing campaign will help us understand the unique merits of your research product.

Why does FRS interview our clients?

Speaking with a cross-section of your current client base will give us a better understanding of who uses your product and why. We use this feedback as the starting point for your marketing campaign.

Why does FRS give new prospects complimentary research trials?

The longer the trial period, the higher the conversion rate to a paying client. It can take money managers six months (or longer) to incorporate your research into their investment methodology.

Does FRS provide product feedback?

Yes, we’ll keep you up to date with what your clients are saying about your research. You can use this valuable information to improve your products and identify new business opportunities.
