NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2015 /CNW/ -- Dealogic is pleased to announce it has completed the acquisition of A2 Access LLC. Founded in 2012, A2 Access is the market-leading provider of an aggregated calendar of corporate access events to institutional investors.
Founded by former hedge fund analysts Billy Fennebresque and Robert Long, with Jack Fennebresque, A2 Access has experienced rapid adoption by more than 200 notable hedge funds and asset managers with combined AUM exceeding $2 trillion. Corporate access data for 140+ broker-dealers is available on the platform, creating the largest aggregated view of events. A2 Access is also developing additional modules on tracking and voting.
"A2 Access has developed an innovative solution that helps investors and broker-dealers collaborate," Tom Fleming, CEO of Dealogic, said. "The acquisition of A2 Access fits with our objective of helping capital markets operate efficiently. Integrating our market-leading corporate access products with the A2 Access solution enables clients to more easily control the distribution, timeliness, and quality of their information. Additionally there is the potential to help clients streamline logistics and improve analytics. This is our first acquisition since being acquired by Carlyle and we continue to look for opportunities to enhance what we can do for our clients."
