The Research Optimus Benefits for Banking Support

Here are some of the most important benefits of working with Research Optimus as your investment banking support services partner:

  • Research Optimus can help with all major investment banking functions — Instead of working with several support service providers, you can reduce administrative time and costs by choosing one team of experts to help you with tasks assigned to multiple investment banking divisions such as sales, trading, project and asset finance, DCM, M&A, and ECM.
  • The Research Optimus team has a time-zone edge that can provide overnight results — Timing is frequently everything in a fast-paced investment banking environment, and we can often deliver what you need overnight at a critical juncture in your current deal. Due to time-zone differences, many special assignments given to our team in the evening can be completed by the next morning.
  • Research Optimus can truly support investment banking on a worldwide basis — Whether you want macroeconomic reports, market updates, tax guidance, third party validation or customized investment banking market reviews, the multi-language and multi-cultural expertise of Research Optimus will facilitate your success in an investment world that speaks many different languages.
  • Research Optimus is a data management expert — Because Research Optimus is a leader in data management, you can reduce employee time spent on database support. Due to the increasing complexity of handling Big Data, this should save hundreds (or possibly thousands) of internal labor hours that would otherwise be devoted to data maintenance and report creation for your investment banking team.
  • Research Optimus provides global expertise in business communications — Investment banking success can frequently hinge on the quality of a presentation or written report. Our team provides specialized pitch books, white papers, information memorandums and presentations that will enable you to stand out among the competition.
