DKF Market Data Person of the Year 2022: Dr. Wolfgang Dietl
The DKF Market Data Person of the Year 2022 is Dr. Wolfgang Dietl. Read some highlights of the laudatory speech provided by Dr. Alexis Eisenhofer:
In 2001, Dr. Wolfgang Dietl set up a market data unit within the Allianz called IDS Analysis and Reporting to evaluate their own portfolio in the best possible way and to support the portfolio managers in their search for alpha. The unit has grown to over 300 employees and has also gained a great reputation outside the parent company. Many of the insurance company’s competitors at least want to use the services of this market data unit. There is probably no vendor in the market that does not provide data for the unit. They have integrated more than 50 data sources.
