Connect2 Research Distribution



 Research Distribution for Investment Research Content


Research Distribution to ALL Aggregators as a free managed service (Connect2)


Connect2 is our Research Distribution platform to deliver research to the marketplace so that Research Providers can get content to their clients through a single point of contact, and still maintain full control of their content.

Distribution of research has always been key to Research Providers, however large or small, and worldflow have always viewed our role in this as providing the “pipes” to connect the market together so that you “connect to” your clients (Connect2).

MIFID II has changed the way that the Research market works. This is driving a number of mechanisms to Price, Distribute and to Manage research in the new unbundled world and means Providers can be feeding several more Aggregators, and often direct to Clients systems..

worldflow provide a uniform feed service to Research Providers, whether on the Sell-Side, Independent Research Providers or Buy-Sides feeding some of the big four aggregators, and all of the new set of aggregators.

worldflow have partnerships with the bulk of the newer players to feed research, in the same way we have with the big four. So a provider can provide us with a single feed of research through Email, SFTP, WordPress feed or our Direct Portal, and we will provide to all the destinations that they need, from one place.

By utilising worldflow’s Connect2 Distribution service a Research Provider can feed to any or all platforms from a single point that they need to, whilst seeing control over who sees what.

Connect2 is free for Research Distribution, so sign up now.

Connect2 can also automate Aggregation of Readership across all your target distribution platforms for a flat fee per month, saving you resource, and giving you far better insights to who uses your content and where.
