Who We Are

At BlueMatrix we aim to provide investment professionals with the best tools to seamlessly author, distribute, and consume investment research.

Our customers range from leading international investment banks and wealth-management firms to independent research boutiques. BlueMatrix applications offer research productivity and compliance solutions for both sell-side and buy-side companies. The benefits of our systems include compliance oversight, company profiles, entitlements and internal readership statistics.

BlueMatrix was founded in 1999 by technologists Patricia Horotan and Skye Haupman and has grown into the world’s largest independent investment research provider, offering what we believe to be an unmatched range of applications.

At the company, we believe our success is contingent on maintaining close relationships with clients, allowing us to provide individually tailored solutions, and we place a premium on accountability, neutrality and transparency.

BlueMatrix is headquartered in New York City with European operations based in London and a satellite office in Romania.
