Ned Davis Research partners with C8 Technologies

Ned Davis Research (NDR) has partnered with C8 Technologies, the first global marketplace for asset owners, funds, banks and index providers. 

NDR's comprehensive, historical data combined C8's user experience platform increases access among investors to active, tradeable indices.

"Over the past fove years, we've seen growing demand among our clients globally to access our highly renowned models for direct investment," says Brian Sanborn, Senior Vice President of Wealth Management Solutions at Ned Davis Research. "This new partnership with C8 simplifies the implementation of NDR's insights, while giving investors the flexibility to tailor a solution specific to their portfolio's mandate."

Using the C8 platform, investors can directly trade assets based on NDR's models gaining access to institutional-grade investment strategies at a lower cost. The client executes the trades through their existing broker or bank, as opposed to committing to a fund or structure and pass over custody of the capital. The strategy therefore offers investors greater transparency into their positions and an ability to customise their portfolio, crucial for ESG investing, without the costs associated with sub-allocating capital to external managers. There are significant tax-loss harvesting benefits, as well.

Investors will gain access to NDR's proprietary models and research, including the NDR Dynamic Allocation Strategy, the Day Hagan/NDR Smart SectorTM with Catastrophic Stop Strategy, and the NDR Global Allocation Strategy.

Mattias Eriksson, CEO of C8 Technologies, adds: "The simplification of direct indexing means that it is easier to act on NDR's research to stay ahead of the market. C8 streamlines regulatory concerns and ultimately democratises advanced investment techniques, bringing them to a wider audience of investors."

For both C8 and NDR, this partnership represents a dedication to providing the highest quality service and agility necessary to meet the evolving needs of their clients.
