Alternative Data > Best Data Analysis Tool
dv01 is the world’s first end-to-end data management, reporting and analytics platform offering loan-level transparency and insight into lending markets. The company’s mission is to modernize the world’s fixed income markets through technology. The size of the US mortgage and consumer lending business that dv01 is serving through its streamlined data, analytics and reporting tools is $20T+. Current underserved market participants spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a fragmented, inefficient and mediocre workflow. The current securitization process and infrastructure has not changed in over 20 years, especially when it comes to reporting and analytics.
Founded in 2014, in response to transparency issues in lending markets highlighted during the global financial crisis, dv01’s underlying technology takes large amounts of disparate data sets and then cleanses, normalizes and standardizes this data. This makes it easier for capital markets to analyze the data within seconds, completely replacing laborious tasks that previously took days. As CEO Perry Rahbar puts it, “Think of us as a hub for capital markets, we want to own the desktop for structured finance.”
dv01’s all in one solution is changing the way lending market participants access and use loan data. While the company’s competitors each offer one of these functions, dv01 is the only market data platform to offer all of them--and the only to offer market surveillance at all. Large datasets can be burdensome for investors to handle, specifically as it relates to data cleansing, normalization and reporting. Answering complex questions around loan performance, prepays and defaults, as well as comparing across originators or loan characteristics can also be extremely difficult. dv01 solves these issues for investors through its user-friendly web application that can be accessible to anyone in the organization. The end result is that processes that used to take days now take seconds.
