Investment researchers can gain access to a wealth of fundamental research quickly and efficiently through the AlphaSense expert transcript library and reduce reliance on frequent expert calls. This approach lets you conduct fundamental research quickly and use personalized expert calls to conduct last-mile research to maximize your primary investment research budget.

In this blog, we explore how investment researchers can maximize their ROI by leveraging AlphaSense Expert Insights to save on research time and cost through our on-demand transcript library, powerful AI technology, and Expert Call Services.

The Current State of Expert Calls

Traditionally, investment analysts dedicated significant time and resources to conducting expert calls for primary research. From sourcing experts and coordinating calls to conducting interviews, the overall process can consume valuable hours and incur substantial costs for investment researchers.

With the industry average price per expert call being around $1,200, your primary research expense can quickly add up when conducting thorough due diligence on an investment opportunity or company through expert networks.

Let’s say you purchase a call bundle with an expert network for twenty calls, which is a typical entry-level package, and your industry average cost per call is $1,200. You can expect your annual cost for an expert network call bundle to be about $24,000. On top of that, you may also need to pay for a call transcription service which can run you another $75 per call or about $1,500 annually.

But what do you get for your annual $24,000 primary research spend? Only 20 expert calls to complete your investment process. 

Enter AlphaSense’s Expert Insights, which has disrupted the expert network industry by streamlining the expert call process into an on-demand library of proprietary transcripts across a range of industries paired with powerful AI-search technology.

Expert Call Services

One major disadvantage of expert networks is their steep upfront investment costs due to their expensive and large volume call bundles. These call bundles also foster uncertainty as the experts you may be connected with may not be a perfect fit for your primary research needs.

However, leveraging AlphaSense Expert Insights allows you to screen expert profiles by perusing the expert transcript library to assess expert quality or have our research team custom recruit an expert for your project within 48 hours. Expert Insights helps you mitigate the risk of wasting valuable time and money on unproductive one-on-one expert calls.
