"Red Deer offers a user friendly, configurable system that effectively allows the Raymond James branches and directly authorised firms that work with us to tailor their research to their individual investment propositions, whilst also enabling us to measure research consumption, quantitatively as well as qualitatively."The end solution allows us to maximise our wealth managers’ value from research, which benefits their investor clients, whilst also facilitating compliance with MiFID II.”



“Red Deer has been one of the unexpected benefits of MiFID II. The platform allows me to filter and access the research that I need to support my investment strategy in a timely and efficient manner from a broad range of research houses. It has cut down the time for finding research considerably, allowing me more time to manage client portfolios.”
