Information is the oxygen supply of the financial markets. Financial information, or data, is so important that companies such as Barclays and Citigroup now have executive positions of Chief Data Officer or Head of Data Acquisition. This book, by a long-time industry insider at one of the leading data management vendors, discusses the present and future of financial data management by focusing on the lifecycle of the financial instruments (stocks, bonds, options, derivatives) that generate and require data to keep the markets moving. This book is a concise reference manual of the financial information supply chain and how to maximize effectiveness and minimize cost.
