Information is a missing link.
• Little information is available and it is quickly
outdated and rarely updated.
• Available information lacks consistency and
comparability, and is hard to quantify.
• Due diligence is expensive and difficult; most
information is anecdotal.
• It is fragmented by theme and market.
Inaccessible • It is not well-organized and it is hard to find.
• It is very often undocumented.
