The Bloomberg Alternative Data Business is focused on growing our platform of Third Party alternative data providers’ proprietary data sets, and developing innovative ways for clients to access the content. Investment managers, traders, principal investors and corporate leaders are increasingly looking to non-traditional data to help inform investment decisions. Through our industry-leading reference data product, Data License, Bloomberg delivers alternative datasets in ready-to-use formats to help investors uncover opportunities and build new strategies. Standard identifiers make testing datasets and extracting insights easier and faster. Data set vary across a wide range of markets and data categories, such as consumer behaviour, industry insights, and technology trends.

Our Client Service team is responsible for on-boarding and managing content from our data partners which is then made available to our client base via Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point.
