What is broker research and Wall Street Insights?

Broker research is developed by sell-side firms to help investors and hedge fund managers discover market opportunities and make informed investment decisions. Increasingly, this expert analysis has also been identified by forward-looking corporations as a highly valuable tool to inform strategic decision-making.

AlphaSense’s Wall Street Insights is the first and only equity research collection purpose-built for the corporate market, providing corporations unprecedented access to a deep pool of equity research reports from thousands of expert analysts.

Through partnerships with Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Barclays, Bernstein, Bernstein Autonomous, Cowen, Deutsche Bank, Evercore ISI, HSBC, and others, corporate professionals can now access the world’s most revered equity research, indexed and searchable.

Why is broker research better in AlphaSense?

AlphaSense’s Smart Search technology recognizes relevant language patterns and assigns correct tagging to reports from thousands of analysts and research firms, regardless of which broker provided the report.
