Clients | Investment Research Services for Brokerage Firms

Aranca provides outsourced equity research, economic research, credit and fixed income research and analysis support to brokerage firms, helping them to increase their research output while also reducing costs. In an environment of falling commissions and tougher regulations, several sell-side firms have been forced to cut their research costs and coverage. Aranca’s clients, however, have actually expanded their research coverage, differentiated themselves in the market and retained the flexibility to ramp up or down – all without adding any fixed costs.

Aranca’s research outsourcing services to sell-side firms are focused on freeing up client analysts’ time for revenue generating client-facing activities. By reducing the time spent by our clients on maintenance research, we enable them to focus on generating more ideas and ramp up research faster.

Having worked with 40+ brokerage houses from developed to emerging markets, our analysts have provided research on over 2500 companies across 70 sectors and all major geographies. Whether it is supporting company research initiations or ongoing maintenance, sector / thematic research or regular monitoring of markets or companies, Aranca’s highly trained analysts are proficient in taking on various tasks specific to our client's requirements.
