I'm currently anassociate covering the technology sector for a boutique. With an industry that's consolidating and the upcoming MIFID regulation, it looks like Bloomberg is positioning themselves to provide investment value with their own in-house research. The research arm, Bloomberg Intelligence was created around 2008 post-financial crisis and is composed of former sell-side/buy-side analysts.
Given they're not a broker-dealer and its precarious position to not compete with their clients, I assume the value of their research is to drive terminal sales. I notice a lot more of their content displayed on my terminal screen. With where the industry is heading, just wanted to get the community's opinion on Bloomberg's research, and does this look like a sustainable model or are my chances better off at a?
