Harnessing Data for Better Valuations
A-Team Group, a publishing and research company specialising in financial information technology, was commissioned by enterprise data management specialist GoldenSource to conduct research into the challenges of managing pricing and valuations data.
Throughout the course of October 2009, A-Team Group researchers interviewed senior-level specialists closely aligned to market data or valuations. Several spanned multiple responsibilities including oversight of client data, product information, and trading risk.
The interview sample was spread across asset managers (52%), Tier-1 and Tier-2 banks (32%), broker/dealers (11%) and custodians (5%).
Geographically, participants were dispersed across the United Kingdom (47%), Europe (21%), and the United States (32%). Over half of the respondents had global responsibility within their organizations.
