At some point in time you have to think…

The wrong data can lead to the wrong advice, which can lead to your reputation being tarnished.


Don’t be fooled… NOT ALL DATA IS THE SAME

The simple fact is that only Vestdata± has the most comprehensive data available within our target market segment, but some vendors would try and make you think otherwise.

So if you have received an offer to buy data at a cheap price or to have it included in your software, how do you know that it is equal to the data that Vestdata± supplies or the data is correct?


How to check if your investment data is correct…

OK, so you have just received an offer to buy data at a lower price or to have it included in your software, but how do you know that it is equal to the data that Vestdata± supplies.


Here’s 5 simple questions to ask before you make a decision:

  1. Ask what is the physical make up of the data feed; what does it consist of ?
  2. Ask how do they collate the data; do they receive it daily or monthly (if monthly when)
  3. Ask how long have they been collating data or is this a new service offering.
  4. Ask what is their ERLF rate (common industry term) and if they can not answer that question then you automatically know they don’t fully understand how data works and more importantly how to ensure its correct.
  5. Ask for a ‘sample file’ and have it compared.
