A dedicated data management effort is key for effective risk- and portfolio management as reporting is not standardized in credit markets. Generally, lots of information is available, however it mostly comes in non processable formats and from many different sources that call for extraction and better storage.
With over twelve years of experience, we have developed a dedicated application to extract data from PDF documents, called S-400. Using S-400, we are extracting information with minimal manual interaction and thus guaranteeing highest data quality with unparalleled processing speed.
We not only specialize in extracting standard market values, but also offer customized data management to our clients.
