Market Data Procurement

opacity and lack of standardization

Market data procurers know their industry, and are the most professional buyers we’ve come across so far in any sector. But two problems mean they are fighting with one hand behind their backs – firstly the opacity and lack of standardization in pricing and provider agreements, and secondly the lack of viable alternatives in many areas. Substantive Research provides industry-first “apples-to-apples” price benchmarks to help with the first issue, and niche or challenger provider adoption rates across peer groups to help with the second.

understanding Budget allocation

CIOs, COOs and CFOs are aligned when it comes to ensuring investment teams have what they need in order to perform, funded by an efficiently run budgeting and procurement process. But in a market where pricing is specific to each firm’s requirements and architecture, it seems impossible to gain a cohesive understanding of how efficient their budget allocation process is, where money can be saved and where effective negotiation matters most. Substantive Research’s price benchmarks provide an industry-first “apples-to-apples” ability to compare your pricing with the wider market and ensure you are spending wisely and for the largest returns.

Viable Alternativers and
right pricing

As market data professionals interact with their investment teams to ensure they get what they need in order to perform, two pieces of knowledge can be powerful. Firstly, whether there are viable alternatives to consider that are being adopted by their peers, and secondly, if they are paying the right price for the current providers that they use. Substantive Research can help with discovery, pointing to the providers that are being adopted successfully in the market, while providing crucial insights into the consistency (or inconsistency) of pricing trends and agreement structures.
