For All Participants

Nucleus195 traces its origins back to when the founders worked together at a U.S.-based “chaperone” broker where they facilitated the distribution of global market research. Confronted every day with the problems of the traditional research model, they knew there was a better way.

They envisioned a platform with more fairness,
efficiency and transparency for all participants.

Another driver was MiFID II, European regulations that would force unbundling and change the way research is consumed and paid for throughout the industry. Scott & Mehdi knew that independent content providers would need a better distribution and compensation solution, as would global market brokers.

They envisioned a platform with improved technology and price transparency for all participants. They wanted investors to be able to collaborate with research providers and find alpha in uncommon knowledge and unusual places. That meant creating a platform where it would be easy for investment professionals to find and speak to distinctive, locally insightful content produced by analysts from often-overlooked corners of the globe.

Changing how global research is
created, distributed, managed and consumed.

With these guiding concepts, Nucleus195 was born. Equally beneficial for investment professionals and content providers, the platform is changing how global research is distributed, managed and consumed.

The Mission

Nucleus195’s mission is to build a free easy access ecosystem for both producers and consumers of global investment research.

For investment managers, it provides a single access point to the best and most valuable investment ideas and market intelligence provided by broker-dealers, independent research houses, and research boutiques around the globe.

For content producers, the platform helps them to build awareness for their offerings. It provides more global distribution, and more equitable, transparent compensation for their products and access.

In short, Nucleus195 has built a place where both content providers and investment professionals can maximize their opportunities and potential through a fair, transparent, and efficient exchange of distinctive content. It’s the go-to place for unique ideas and access to valuable insights that are hard to find elsewhere.

Captured Markets

Developed Markets

Factor of size, wealth, and industrialized economies put these markets in this top category. They feature high GDP, high per capita income, built-out infrastructures, and solid capital markets. These are well-traveled markets where there can be a lot of ‘noise’ that can make it difficult for investors to find the major growth opportunities they need.

To win in these markets, investors need access to the best content and insights for exceptional and differentiated content providers, including top independent research firms, boutique shops, and individual analysts. This is the type of content that won’t be found via traditional sources.

Emerging Markets

Rapid population growth and increasing productivity are the central themes of every emerging market story. These high-growth scenarios often present investment opportunities that are too big to ignore.

But risks are also a reality in emerging markets. Items such as labor issues, materials shortages, and changing regulations arise quickly and trip up even the most careful investors.

These risks can be mitigated, however, with local knowledge, keen observations, and real-time updates from in-country expertise.

Nucleus195 is the source for emerging market intel for investors who want to capitalize on the growth while sidestepping the risks.

Frontier Markets

Frontier markets aren’t large enough to qualify as emerging markets. High on the risk/reward scale, these markets aren’t for the faint of heart.

The risks are unlike those in more developed markets, and things tend to change quickly in frontier markets.

To win in these markets, investors need the best intelligence from local experts – people who know these markets inside and out.

These local experts form the foundation of Nucleus195’s Frontier Markets offering. With their in-depth business experience and cultural knowledge of these markets, these analysts and researchers keep watch over relevant developments in these fast-moving markets.

Multi-Asset Content

When investors think of Multi-Asset research they straight away jump to equity or bonds but there is so much more that investors can get access through Nucleus195.

With investors having access to many alternative investment classes the need for access to leading research providers is extremely important.

The Nucleus195 platform has research and experts in industries such as cryptocurrency, data, political insights, private companies, and pre-IPO are just a few examples of the alternative content available outside of the traditional content also available.
