Bloomberg absorbs billions of data points from hundreds of financial markets every day. Our developers build applications that fuel the markets by providing intelligent analytics and transparency into these markets. Our customers rely on us to understand markets and analyze complex structures which allow them to make smart investment decisions.
Our enterprise product BVAL is the gold standard for pricing. It generates end-of-day prices for about 3 million fixed income securities and curves. Our suite of applications also includes high-precision pricing algorithms, liquidity hubs for storing and retrieving pricing information, and big data analytics. As the Fixed Income markets feel the need for more continuous pricing, we are working on making our systems more distributed, highly available and continuous. We like to roll up our sleeves, collaborate seamlessly and deliver solutions to clients across all industries.
