Interactive Brokers, one of the world’s prominent electronic giants, has recently set to expand the research offerings that it has on its IBKR platform. The names of these platforms are Channelcheck, BCMstrategy Inc, Naviga Inc, and Gordon Haskett.
New Players On The Block
Channelcheck serves as a free investor portal. The firm strives to provide independent research in subject matters, balanced news to keep sentiments where it should be, and webcasts for interaction. The group, among other things, even offers things like podcasts, videos of their work, as well as going as far as to provide roadshows.
BCMstrategy Inc stands as an operator or frontier knowledge technology. The company leveraged a patented analytical process that has over nine levels of automation. Through this, the company is capable of identifying global macro trends within policy trajectories. They do this through the conversion of public policy’s words into a structured data format.
Wider Research Opportunities
Naviga Inc develops aggregated news topics. They design it from thousands of different, reputable sources within the business industry. Things like general news websites, to regulatory announcements, to rumor wires, and even Pro-feeds are all part of the data gathering network.
Gordan Haskett, or rather GHRA, is one of the leaders when it comes to event-driven research. Its team, led by one Don Bilson, is capable of generating actionable stock ideas, as well as general insights, through the in-depth analysis of events. The firm is capable of anticipating developments like spinoffs, activism, restructurings, M&A, as well as sweeping changes in the management and board.
IBKR’s 2020 Push
It hasn’t even been a proper month since the company had previously added more research providers. Back in January of 2020, the group incorporated Balidea and TheLeadingEdge into its IBKR platform, proving that the company is committed to providing as accurate information as possible.
TheLeadingEdge provides information when it comes to macro and asset allocation. It gears itself to provide relevant information to the everyday investor, instead of trying to specialize in one specific niche. Validea’s Stock Research suite is one that offers a range of investment tools on a web-based platform. It performs stock analysis through leveraging fundamentally-oriented business models developed through the strategies of the legends of Wall Street.
Interactive Brokers have quite recently made quite a push. With any luck, the group will reap the rewards of their constant strides to try and innovate their platform.
