Friday topic series

The Friday topic series is our forum for discussing topics that member firms have expressed interest in, including ESG, sector and industry tagging, and exploring how audio, video, and interactive content relates to more traditional research content.

These meetings are open to all individuals at RIXML member firms, so we encourage you to forward this email to anyone in your organization involved in the topics below. Registration is no longer required.  Please see the RIXML newsletter or contact me to receive the link.

RIXML Investment Research Linkback Technical Implementation Guide now available

The Linkbacks Working Group is excited to announce that the final version of the RIXML Investment Research Linkback Technical Implementation Guide v1.0 is now available.

Next steps will be updated here in early 2022.
