Credit Lyonnais and WestLB Panmure have signed up to offer their proprietary research over the researchsummary.com financial portal.
The two banks join ABN Amro, ING Barings, HSBC and MTS Research in providing professional investors with real-time access to executive summaries covering equities, debt, derivatives, strategy, economics and currencies through the researchsummary.com portal.
Fund managers using the portal can study and organise the summaries of thousands of investment reports received weekly as well as search the Web for related reports and data on these same companies.
Bob Haville, head of equity research, WestLB Panmure, says: "Information overload is the bugbear of the industry. As part of researchsummary we are responding to our clients who demand better and more effective ways to manage information."
