Ipreo introduces revolutionary suite of software and data

Unique integration of analytics, cross-asset equity & fixed-income data, and cutting-edge relationship management platforms changes the landscape of workflow solutions for both capital markets and corporate professionals

New York – June 04, 2008 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of execution software, data and analytics to investment banks and corporations, has announced the launch of a powerful suite of workflow solutions designed to streamline and strengthen all activities related to investor relationship management (IRM).

The core of the offering to both markets is a group of advanced relationship management platforms: BD Advanced and BD Vision for capital markets, and BD Corporate for investor relations professionals – all of which leverage Ipreo’s combined strengths in both data and technology. Through the combination of the Bigdough and NSIGHT acquisitions, Ipreo has become the leading IRM solutions provider to the capital markets, with more client relationships than any other provider in Research, Sales and Trading.

Built on the legacy of Bigdough’s acknowledged leadership in institutional equity data, BD Advanced and BD Corporate combine an intuitive user interface and innovative search and reporting functionality with a new cross-asset class database never before seen in the marketplace. This unprecedented dataset contains contacts, profiles and ownership for global buy side institutions across the investment spectrum, including detailed information on buyers of global equity and fixed-income, such as corporate debt, municipal and sovereign debt, and structured products (asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities, collateralized obligations, and more). BD Vision integrates this unique dataset with Ipreo’s premier enterprise-level CRM application.

“A decade ago, Bigdough revolutionized the institutional investor prospecting and content management space,” said Kevin Marcus, President & COO of Ipreo. “Today, Ipreo is once again changing the way capital markets and IR professionals manage their investor relationships.”

Also included in the suite of IRM services is a full range of robust event management platforms, including iPlanner, iConference, and iConference Registration, which facilitate the planning and execution of roadshows, investor conferences, annual meetings and other marketing initiatives, and are all fully integrated with the BD datasets and platforms.

“This release represents Ipreo’s continued commitment to innovation, and the execution of our stated strategy of integrating state-of-the-art CRM software with unique content,” said Neil Hyman, EVP & MD of Ipreo’s Research, Sales and Trading division. “We are pleased to be out in front of the industry in helping our clients make the most of their investor outreach efforts.”

When the full suite of software applications is combined with Ipreo’s full-service Global Markets Intelligence and Analytics offerings, the result is a true end-to-end IRM solution for both banking and corporate clients.

“We’ve gone beyond just updating our applications,” added Hyman. “Our software and technology are part of a complete set of products and services that work together in new ways to better our clients’ workflow.”
