Global investment bank Lazard Freres has partnered with Nucleus Research to provide investors with IT return on investment research.
Lazard's clients, which include hedge funds and other investment banks, will be able to access research analysing the ROI of IT supplier products, as well as case studies that assess the returns customer companies have obtained from IT investments.
Under the Equity Research Service, Lazard clients will be able to purchase annual subscriptions to Nucleus Research ROI reports, including case studies and vendor profiles. Lazard customers that subscribe to the service will get bi-monthly electronic newsletters from Nucleus and have access to Nucleus analysts.
Erick Brethenoux, a vice president at Lazard Freres in New York, said the company considered other research firms but decided that the information provided by Nucleus was "geared more for financial investors".
