London/Stockholm, nov 1st​ ​2017​

​Extel,​ ​the​ ​leading​ ​provider​ ​of​ ​European​ ​rankings​ ​for​ ​the​ ​investment​ ​community,  today​ ​announces​ ​the​ ​launch​ ​of​ ​a​ ​new​ ​service​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​assist​ ​all​ ​sides​ ​of​ ​the​ ​equities​ ​industry​ ​to​ ​determine  value​ ​of​ ​services,​ ​benchmark​ ​against​ ​peers​ ​and​ ​understand​ ​industry​ ​best​ ​practices. This​ ​enhanced​ ​and​ ​unique​ ​service​ ​builds​ ​on​ ​the​ ​existing​ ​market-leading​ ​survey​ ​and​ ​awards,​ ​that​ ​will​ ​provide​ ​an  invaluable​ ​source​ ​of​ ​intelligent​ ​data​ ​to​ ​clients,​ ​and​ ​enable​ ​them​ ​in​ ​a​ ​post-MiFID​ ​II​ ​environment​ ​to:

● Identify​ ​and​ ​champion​ ​excellence;​ ​to​ ​objectively​ ​assess​ ​the​ ​value​ ​of​ ​research​ ​advisory​ ​services. 
● Evaluate​ ​the​ ​different​ ​pricing​ ​models​ ​across​ ​research​ ​providers​ ​and​ ​their​ ​services​.
● Institutionalise​ ​best​ ​practice​ ​in​ ​client​ ​strategy,​ ​pricing​ ​and​ ​engagement. 

As​ ​new​ ​regulations​ ​around​ ​research​ ​pricing​ ​become​ ​effective,​ ​Extel​ ​recognises​ ​that​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​unprecedented  scrutiny​ ​on​ ​valuing​ ​the​ ​provision​ ​of​ ​research​ ​services,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​have​ ​adapted​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​the​ ​changing​ ​needs​ ​of​ ​our  clients​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​the​ ​high​ ​value​ ​market​ ​intelligence​ ​that​ ​clients​ ​associate​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Extel​ ​brand. The​ ​core​ ​Extel​ ​Survey​ ​will​ ​remain,​ ​offering​ ​all​ ​sides​ ​of​ ​the​ ​investment​ ​community​ ​an​ ​anonymous,​ ​independent  and​ ​technically​ ​efficient​ ​forum​ ​for​ ​submitting​ ​rankings​ ​and​ ​opinions​ ​on​ ​their​ ​industry​ ​relationships.​ ​The​ ​new  service​ ​will​ ​extend​ ​this​ ​process​ ​to: 

● Deliver​ ​the​ ​most​ ​intellectually​ ​robust​ ​and​ ​complete​ ​view​ ​of​ ​the​ ​equities​ ​value​ ​chain​ ​in​ ​Europe.
● Allow​ ​engagement​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​year​ ​across​ ​the​ ​Sell-side,​ ​Buy-side​ ​and​ ​Corporate​ ​landscapes. 
● Increase​ ​the​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​aligning​ ​client​ ​needs,​ ​service​ ​value​ ​and​ ​resourcing.
● Identify​ ​substantive​ ​providers​ ​of​ ​investment​ ​advice,​ ​with​ ​independence​ ​and​ ​transparency.
● Enable​ ​client​ ​analytics​ ​and​ ​advice​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​best​ ​practice.
● Extend​ ​Extel​ ​globally​ ​into​ ​2019.
