Merrill and Bloomberg Teaming Up on Research

By Editorial Staff

Two of the biggest players in financial services are teaming up to distribute market research and analysis around the globe. Merrill Lynch and Bloomberg, L.P. have agreed to distribute Merrill's institutional e-commerce portal to Bloomberg's 140,000 institutional clients, using Bloomberg's computer network.

The portal features research, market commentary and analysis, new issue offerings, secondary trading for debt and equity, as well as post-trade reporting. Users will be able to click back and forth between Bloomberg's data and Merrill trading services and research.

Bloomberg and Merrill Lynch have worked on other projects. Their partnership dates back to 1982 when the first Bloomberg terminals were installed at Merrill. Merrill which has a 20 percent stake in Bloomberg, was a founding investor in the privately-held company. Most recently, both collaborated on a Merrill service for fixed-income securities on the Bloomberg platform.
