Is The Data Available Today For DCM Market Participants Still Adequate?

Bond issuance is still today dominated by a constant exchange of data that is critical to the success of any transaction. This information needs to be accurate, accessible and delivered in a structured and secure manner. 

What is there and what is missing? 

DCM teams need daily access to accurate up to date information to inform decision making – whether historical data and analytics or unstructured data. More often than not the historical information spans different types of deals, currencies and maturities. It is information needed to land a new deal or support a live one, to analyse an orderbook or reply to an urgent question from a client. Whatever the situation, fast, accurate and detailed information is needed that will show past investors, investment trends or generate insights. 

What can be improved and what will be the impact?

A spreadsheet and a pivot table used to be enough to deal with this, not any more though. Being able to manage the big volume of historical data needs a well thought out system with the capacity to combine and analyse data as needed, on the go, daily.
