PitchBook – Providing trustworthy and revolutionary tools to analyze data in the private investment lifecycle


Financial market data is a key part of the financial professional's workflow, as this data equips the user with real-time quotes and up-to-date and accurate financial information. The financial market data industry can be broadly classified into Terminals and Proprietary Data & Value Add Service Providers. Terminal businesses dominate the Financial Market data industry. These suppliers play a significant role in banking and financial companies' business data gathering to gain knowledge on market rates, indices, exchange fluctuations, and credit pricing, among others. They also play a significant role in analytics and chat support. Hence, the demand for financial market data is driven by investment bankers, corporate financiers, and portfolio managers who are top contributors to the annual demand increase during the past five years.
