Data Service driven to the next level.
Convergence has revolutionized the way that the Financial Services community uses data by independently creating proprietary data-driven insights that support their revenue growth, efficiency and non-investment risk objective
Founded in 2013 by “C-Suite” Executives who had successful track records at Apollo Global Management, JPMorgan, GlobeOp Financial, BISYS, Fidelity, Bank of America, Arthur Andersen, KPMG, and MFS Investments.
Convergence personnel has since expanded to encompass “buy” and “sell” side “C-Suite” executives with consulting experience and pedigree from various bulge-bracket firms such as Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Tiger Management.

Convergence is the only company that provides deep and original predictive data analytics powered by over 10 years of time series original content.
Data Science powers our insights
Convergence combines data collection, curation and enrichment with data science, subject matter expertise and execution solutions to bring our clients an end-to-end solution to support their objectives.
Our insights are independent because we collect, curate, enrich and develop new data artifacts by leveraging information that asset managers, service providers and allocators put into the public domain. Thus, every data artifact in our database can be traced back to public representations or disclosures.
Commitment to Accuracy
We achieve over a 95% confidence level in the data we source by cross-referencing all our data in the public domain. Competitor data lacks independence because it is sourced from clients with no cross referencing for completeness and accuracy.
Industry Leading Content
Our original proprietary research and insights allows us to create cutting-edge original content including Competitive Analysis, Service Provider League Tables, Asset Manager Non-Investment Risk Scoring and Service Provider Commercial Risk.
THE CONVERGENCE DATABASE
Data infused with Meaning

We maintain 10+ years of clean, structured and enriched time series data. Enriched data means our data is shaped to deliver you insights as part of our highly curated process for each client.
Our data is sourced daily from multiple US and non-US regulatory filings websites and third-party sources.
We quote our database statistics for active advisers and funds. Inactive funds and advisers, often called “graveyard data” is available upon request. We welcome the opportunity to compare and contrast competitor information or representations and unit costs to ours.
