Every month, Ipreo reaches out to our network of financial professionals to get their insight into issues that affect the marketplace, and to provide our Corporate clients with a little glimpse into the minds of the investment community.
Among our most essential resources are the buy-side analysts and portfolio managers we work with, colleagues who are in the trenches every day, dealing firsthand with the challenges and complexities of the industry. We look to them for their opinions and insider viewpoints on the essential topics of the day, in order to both stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape and to stay ahead of the challenges and concerns of our clients.
Recently, we asked select members of our network the sources they turn to when seeking consensus estimates, and why they rely on those specific outlets. There was a fair amount of agreement among the answers, as Bloomberg and FactSet were continually cited as trusted sources, but there were also some professionals who used more than one source, or looked somewhere else entirely for their information.
