Neil Bathon, who founded Financial Research Corp. in 1987, has now formed a new investment management research firm, FUSE Research Network. Bathon said the information he will provide investment management distributors will be “actionable.”


“With FUSE, our goal is not to produce information, but to assist clients to enact change by providing implementation support based upon the insights we derive through our research efforts,” Bathon said. “There are any number of providers who offer interesting data books and reports. Our research is designed to fill a higher spot on the value scale by delivering tangible, actionable guidance.”


Joining Bathon in running the company is former FRC President Michael Evans. “I’m very pleased to be reconnecting with Neil at FUSE,” Evans said. “We firmly believe in our ability to convert marketplace knowledge into tangible results on the behalf of our clients. Many of the traditional information providers have not kept pace with changing needs of asset managers. The service offerings of FUSE will provide clients with the next generation of research support through the practical application of knowledge.”
