At Bloomberg, our products are fueled by powerful information. We combine data and context to paint the whole picture for our clients, around the clock – from around the world. In Global Data, we’re responsible for delivering this data, news and analytics through innovative technology - quickly and accurately.

The core of our business is data. Content Acquisition & Business Management (CABM) supplies and analyses how our clients consume data. Within CABM, our Third Party Contracts team is specifically responsible for negotiating and securing agreements for the data which feeds all of Bloomberg’s products. We work closely with world-wide data providers (including stock exchanges, interdealer brokers, news agencies and various other contributors), product managers, implementation teams and in-house legal to create, administer, maintain and understand all legal documentation. Most importantly, we help to secure and safeguard the best commercial and legal outcomes for the company.
