Effron PSN tracks data from over 1200 active managers – its Web-based information services range in price from $2,000 per annum at the low end to $45,000 at the high end. Vuong says that this movement to the Web is “just the beginning of real-time feeds of information from investment managers to investors – this information is collected via the Web and that’s how it should ideally be disseminated.”
