The RIXML Standards Suite is comprised of four standards:
RIXML Research Standard
The RIXML Research Standard provides a set of tags and rules that can be used to describe investment research documents, audio files, etc. Using the RIXML Research standard enables firms to improve the process of categorizing, aggregating, comparing, sorting, searching, and distributing global financial research.
RIXML Interactions Standard
The RIXML Interactions Standard provides a set of tags and rules that can be used to describe interactions involving research providers, research consumers, corporate representatives, and third-party experts. This standard was created to help firms comply with the changes to the EU’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
RIXML Roster Updates Standard
The RIXML Roster Updates Standard is a sidecar to the RIXML Research Standard, enabling a research publisher to communicate changes to the groups of people playing various roles on its behalf in the investment research marketplace (such as a financial services firm updating its roster of research analysts with aggregator partners).
RIXML Coverage Updates Standard
The RIXML Coverage Updates Standard is a sidecar to the RIXML Research Standard, giving a publisher the ability to communicate changes to its coverage universe, including updating the list of companies covered by a particular analyst.
