Research Management System
The way you organize your research is special. EDS makes it scalable.
A Research Management System (RMS) like no other.
Always up to date and fully configurable.
The story you document is just as important as the data that supports it. And as a fundamental investor, you take copious notes, every chance you have – analyst calls, earnings calls, management meetings, conferences, etc. You even have a tear sheet that defines your investment thesis and projected risk and returns – and so does your whole team.
However, all this information is disconnected – created in static applications (Word, Outlook, Evernote, Excel) and stored in multiple locations – meaning it is not organized on a firm-wide level. Getting the most out of your hard work, is, well, hard work.
EDS solves this challenge by bringing your research process and everything that supports it to a centralized and intelligent platform, driving better utilization of your insights while improving collaboration and compliance practices.
