New York – May 05, 2011 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of financial services intelligence and productivity solutions to corporations and investment banks, announced an agreement with LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, to provide seamless access to LinkedIn profiles from Ipreo’s BD Suite of investor prospecting and CRM solutions.

Powered by the industry-leading Bigdough database of institutional investor contacts and profiles, Ipreo’s BD Suite provides capital markets and investor relations professionals with a complete workflow solution comprised of global, multi-asset class contact and holdings data, advanced investor screening tools, and comprehensive contact management capabilities.
