Flash alerts via CFRA CONNECT will provide real-time updates on CFRA research

NEW YORK, (November 12, 2018) – CFRA, one of the world’s largest providers of independent research, today announced that it is partnering with MT Newswires, a recognized global leader in the creation and dissemination of original and unbiased financial news, to launch “CFRA CONNECT.”

This new service will utilize MT Newswires’ premium, real-time news service as an alert mechanism whenever new research from the CFRA team is made available.

“Far too often, retail investors, wealth managers and active traders miss the critical, time-sensitive research necessary to make timely and informed investment decisions,” said Peter de Boer, chief executive officer with CFRA. “With CFRA CONNECT, investors of all types will be better equipped to receive and utilize our industry leading research and insights.”

For platforms licensed to display both MT Newswires news updates and CFRA research, the solution will deliver ticker-tagged and category-coded news alerts in real time, providing a summary of the latest CFRA research with a platform link to the full research report.

“The design of most trading and wealth management applications makes finding and utilizing relevant third-party research inherently challenging,” said Brooks McFeely, chief executive officer with MT Newswires. “Not so with CFRA CONNECT, which is designed for seamless desktop and mobile platform integration. We’re thrilled to be partnering with CFRA on this endeavor, which pairs best in class financial news delivery with industry-leading research, a combination that can significantly enhance any research and trading experience.”

CFRA provides retail investors, advisors and institutions with award-winning independent investment analysis, market/industry/sector commentary, and actionable investment ideas. Additionally, its unique holdings-based, forward-looking methodology provides a deeper level of insight into ETFs and mutual funds for investors and advisors in building and managing investment portfolios.
