Justin's Insights & Research

Eine Welt, in der Fondsmanager und Besitzer von Vermögenswerten in Echtzeit auf Daten zugreifen und daraus nützliche Erkenntnisse gewinnen können – wo immer sie sich befinden und wie immer sie möchten – mag heute noch etwas fern erscheinen, aber sie ist näher, als man vielleicht denkt.
