03 May 2019
Invisage platform (previously Parity One), the cloud-based solution for research management by Invisage (previously VTFinTech), has won the prestigious RegTech Insight Awards 2019 for the Best Research Management Solution for MiFID II.
MiFID II regulation mandates the unbundling of investment research from execution. This has created a void for tools that can enable both buy-side and sell-side to evaluate research and its impact. Parity One provides objective, independent, reliable and investment ready evaluation of research.
Angela Wilbraham, CEO of A-Team Group, which hosts the RegTech Insight Awards said –
“We are delighted that our cross-platform readership of over 20,000 senior technology officers and data specialists clearly rated VTFinTech – Parity One, as the Best Research Management Solution for MiFID II in a very competitive field. We congratulate them on their prestigious RegTech Insight Award win”
