Ipreo Publishes Inaugural Edition of the Discovery Data Retail Financial Services Industry Almanac™

New York – April 16, 2015 – Ipreo, a leading financial services industry provider of data and analytics on firms and professionals, has published the Discovery Data Retail Financial Services Industry Almanac™: 2014 Edition. The first in an annual series, the Almanac was developed from over two years of extensive research into Discovery Data Archive™, the most comprehensive historical dataset on firms and reps in the financial services industry, identifying key trends and opportunities.

Within the publication Discovery Data seeks to answer the question: What is going on in the retail financial services industry? To do so, a vast array of themes and topics are covered such as The Move to Independent, Aging of the Advisor Population, Firm Segmentation, Rep Registration Activity and Retail RIA AUM Analysis, and over 200 charts, graphs and tables are presented throughout.

Discovery Data Retail Financial Services Industry Almanac™ is unlike any other industry research study available,” stated Bob Herrmann, Managing Director of the Global Asset & Wealth Management division of Ipreo. “To help our clients make the best strategic decisions for their businesses we are providing them research built on 3 billion data points on BD and RIA firms and reps, with in-depth commentary and breakdowns on the entire industry rather than narrow views compiled by extrapolating from a small sampling.”

The Almanac is only one component of the Discovery Data Market Insight offering. Clients receive an annual subscription to Discovery Data’s interactive Market Insight Dashboards, enabling them to conduct their own custom analyses, along with quarterly white papers and six hours of company specific research and consulting.
