Case study

Hedge fund with billions in AUM streamlines research management, gains real-time insights

Picture this… you’re a successful employee-owned hedge fund that’s been trading for 25 years. Not only did you survive the 2008 downturn, you’ve also delivered above-average returns every year since your founding.

But, when it comes to research, your analysts aren’t on the same page. Some are using an old RMS that’s clunky and not a true SaaS platform. It stores your research, but it doesn’t show your unique, data-driven research insights the way you need it to. You’ve got another group of analysts using a different research management application, and some analysts aren’t using either. It’s a compliance and collaboration nightmare.

So, you turn to Mackey. We unify your two existing systems onto one secure, SaaS-based platform that is tailored to show different research content views based on which user is logged in. We also help you design workflows to match your research process for all 60,000 securities you invest in globally.

Now, you have one company-wide research management platform that’s powerful, searchable, and updates in real time. Not only can different departments share information more easily, but you also now have a more consistent, repeatable investment process. That’s what happens when you do more of what works.
