Data Collection Process

DEXX&R has produced innovative and authoritative research for the Australian Financial Services Industry since 1989. We are one of the longest established independent research companies in Australia and are wholly independent of any fund manager, life company or dealer group.

Our dedicated and highly skilled team of analysts and technical staff deliver concise and accurate reports for use by product & research managers, marketing & sales specialists, actuaries, senior executives and advisers within the Australian Financial Services Industry.

All data in the DEXX&R reports and tools is collected exclusively by DEXX&R direct from each of the Australian Financial Services companies. We do not limit our data capture to products used by advisers or to product for which investment performance is available.
