IRC Securities’ proficient middle office provides a full suite of payment options to the buy-side when paying for research services to allow research firms the greatest flexibility to collect payment for their research. This includes assisting research analysts through the required process to get officially listed in an asset manager’s broker vote.
IRC Securities has agreements with all the major CSA/CCA programs as well as a number of boutique broker dealers for the straightforward collection of research payments. IRC Securities will direct research invoices to asset managers or to their CSA /CCA providers for payment out of their pooled research credits.
IRC Securities provides a menu of choices to give the buy-side the ability to direct specific trades to IRC Securities through both low touch execution platforms and high touch trading desks. When trades are directed, the commissions are shared with IRC Securities for payments to our registered analysts.
