NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based AlphaSense, the leading market intelligence and search platform, today announced that equity research from William Blair will now be available on the AlphaSense platform through Wall Street Insights® (WSI), its exclusive aftermarket research product.
WSI allows companies across all industry verticals to tap into the deep expertise of premier equity research from Wall Street's top analyst teams—including J.P. Morgan, Citi, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Barclays, UBS, Credit Suisse, Bernstein, and now William Blair. WSI is a key feature of AlphaSense's platform, which applies AI search technology to an extensive universe of public and private content, enabling professionals to uncover valuable insights and make smarter decisions with confidence and speed.
With 40 senior analysts covering 700 companies around the world, William Blair's award-winning research team is known for its healthcare and technology coverage, as well as its superior research on consumer, financial services and technology, global industrial infrastructure, and global services. In 2021, William Blair was ranked by Greenwich Associates as the No. 2 Overall Lead Research/Advisory firm and the No. 2 firm to Provide Information and Insights to Generate Alpha in U.S. small- and mid-cap equity research. The addition of William Blair research to WSI comes on the heels of AlphaSense's exclusive partnership with Citigroup earlier this year.
"We're pleased to forge this relationship with AlphaSense to offer aftermarket research through its platform," said John O'Toole, William Blair's director of research. "Our industry-leading research teams offer a unique perspective on quality growth stocks that span the market-cap spectrum. We believe AlphaSense's clients will benefit from our deep expertise of durable business franchises with superior business models and management teams that can generate strong, consistent growth over the long term."
AlphaSense recently closed a $180 million Series C fundraise in September 2021, and their growth has been driven by strong adoption in the corporate market, alongside continued penetration across financial services.
