Nucleus195 is a platform that connects investment professionals with researchers around the world. The platform provides a simple way to select and purchase research reports and subscriptions, and to initiate a bespoke research request or book calls with analysts.

Nucleus195’s idea was rooted in a series of directives—motivated by the 2008-2009 financial crisis—which steered the financial markets towards regulated transparency and investor protection. Nucleus195 was conceived as a fair, efficient, consumption-based, and fully transparent environment for the buying and selling of investment research.
During the early stages of MVP development, Nucleus195 contracted ELEKS to take over the project and, eventually, to develop and release additional platform functionality.
The Nucleus195 platform is an investment research marketplace that benefits investment managers and content providers:
ELEKS’ experts helped Nucleus195 to develop a web portal that allows buyers to view and purchase research, follow relevant researchers, and order bespoke analytics through a convenient buyer profile. For sellers, the platform was built to offer user-friendly seller profiles with simple workflow dashboards.
After the MVP release, we integrated the platform with Zoom to provide buyers and sellers with the means to connect via one-on-one consultations. The integration also allows users to store the call transcripts and recordings securely, as well as to facilitate post-call payments. We have also expanded the number of user roles to make the platform more flexible in terms of access permissions and expert levels.
Furthermore, we migrated the platform to Amazon Cloud to optimise hosting costs and ensure the platform’s resilience.
With the platform ready, Nucleus195 entered an unsaturated territory of investment research marketplaces, immediately securing a strong position within that market.
From the perspective of an end user, Nucleus195 gives buyers a convenient tool to access a plethora of investment data. They can follow research themes, researchers and ideas; purchase ready-made and/or custom reports; and connect with analysts—all within a single simple platform.
Nucleus195 allows researchers to concentrate on their main business while simultaneously handling all operational and accounting issues.
The breadth of knowledge and understanding that ELEKS has within its walls allows us to leverage that expertise to make superior deliverables for our customers. When you work with ELEKS, you are working with the top 1% of the aptitude and engineering excellence of the whole country.
Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
ELEKS has been involved in the development of a number of our consumer-facing websites and mobile applications that allow our customers to easily track their shipments, get the information they need as well as stay in touch with us. We’ve appreciated the level of ELEKS’ expertise, responsiveness and attention to details.
