To put it in perspective, consider the advent of MiFID II related regulations in Europe that has culminated into a global domino effect in the form of brokerage “commission unbundling” pressure. In the meantime, the service providers in the investments research sector are busy rewriting the rules of engagement and are taking a fresh look at their business models to remain competitive and commercially sustainable. To counter such challenges, organizations today are compelled to look out for the perfect workflow automation and client servicing solution. A New York, U.S., based organization, ANALEC, enters the picture at this point that claims to have discovered the blend of technology and software that boosts customer engagement capabilities of organizations, reduces research costs, and adds greater value to the investment decision-making process.
