The Advantage of First-Person Knowledge refers to TABB’s ability to get the information you need directly from the people who have it. TABB Group has access to high-level professionals in all sectors of the industry, from investors and intermediaries to vendors.
Why we excel at what we do
We are often asked if and why industry professionals - smart and notoriously busy people - will take the time to share their thoughts with us. Simply put, it is our analysts.
As market participants engage in in-depth, one-on-one conversations with top TABB analysts, we are able to provide instant credibility and value. We then follow up by offering to share the aggregated results of our research efforts with them. Whether they are business, IT or trading floor executives, we can always offer a valuable perspective on market structure and technology issues.
The experience gained from having thousands of these discussions provides TABB with a comprehensive 360-degree analytical perspective of the capital markets, and it is reflected in our Interview-based Studies and Vision Notes. View our Derivatives, Equities, Fixed Income, and Data and Analytics content to see how our research model fits into our different service areas and can benefit your business.
You can also read our report summaries by accessing our research catalog using the links below, and see for yourself how the advantage of first-person knowledge transfers to improving your business.
Interview-based Studies are based on one-on-one interviews with typically more than 60-70 business, IT and trading floor executives. The interviews are transcribed for scrupulous accuracy. These results are then reviewed, captured in spreadsheet format and normalized. This last step allows for meaningful summaries of shared views, opinions and industry trends.
Vision Notes are driven by current industry topics and trends when we feel the industry would benefit from TABB Group's ability to provide an objective view and insight into how the markets are being impacted, what changes can be expected as a result, and how a particular event or trend will affect market participants.
PinpointsTM provide clients with a highly visual representation of information and data we have collected using the same research methodology as our Vision Notes and Interview-based Studies. This ensures you still get the advantage of first-person knowledge, but in a format where data is prominently presented and readily understood. You can find TABB Pinpoints categorized with our Vision Notes.
Commentaries are analyst voices on timely events in the marketplace, delivered monthly in our TABB Wire newsletter and on an ad hoc basis as events occur around which we believe our clients and other market participants will find value in our comments.
