“The Opalesque Alternative Market Briefing is my first port of call for up to the minute news in the hedge fund industry. The Briefing brings relevant stories from numerous sources to readers each day, well ahead of other large electronic publications. With each article’s salient points covered in the Briefing, subscribers access the most important news with the minimum of key clicks. Your wide coverage and balanced presentation of continuing debates gives me a clear and reliable picture of the industry as a whole. I also find your archive useful; stories are stored in a highly searchable format, traceable through a mere phrase. It is helpful to find a news site which provides such a thorough archive source to all subscribers, and a great attribute to Opalesque.”
