Dealogic wins this year’s best sell-side mobile initiative award, the third company to win the category since 2013. Dealogic , the London-based vendor’s mobile app, was launched in April 2016. Erik Anderson, Cortex product head at Dealogic, says Dealogic  was built to provide the same personalized, real-time insight as the vendor’s flagship Dealogic platform to senior bankers who are now experiencing a generational shift. “We used to deliver content to desk-bound analysts who used to rely on manual reports,” Anderson says. “What changed is that we’re seeing the next generation in the brass ring that grew up with mobile phones and who want to consume content while they’re on the road.”

Anderson says the content found on Dealogic  is the same as on its desktop platform, including client and market performance data, predictive analytics, and live capital market deals. He notes that the Dealogic mobile app tailors its information specifically for bank-selling views and offers forward-looking content. 

Dealogic  was built on HTML5, so that it can be accessed from any mobile device without being reliant on any particular operating system. It offers users different permission levels based on their function and role within the bank or other financial institution, and delivers customized data for each user. Teams can also collaborate through the app, which allows for the sharing of reports while on the move.

According to Anderson, the mobile app, as well as the original desktop version, provides users with full visibility into all of the underlying data and assumptions that go into insights. “The prior workflow was that you got a report emailed to you and you read it a couple of hours later. Then you realized that you had a question, so you emailed the person who created the report and they may or may not have been at their desk. So you get into this cycle that takes 24 hours just to answer a question about what you’re seeing,” says Anderson. “With the app, that’s now done in real time.”

Mifid II, set to come into force in January next year, might also influence the type of content pushed out to users by Dealogic, according to Anderson. “We’re seeing a lot of time and resources being put into Mifid compliance, especially among our research clients who are primarily impacted by the regulation. We believe we can do a lot to help both the buy side and the sell side understand the resources investors are consuming.”
