Bridging Theory and Practice with Trusted Data Solutions
With the impressive market adoption of the CRSP Indexes, this phrase is more than just a tag line at Chicago Booth’s Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP). Recall that in 1960, Chicago Booth embarked on developing the world’s first comprehensive database for historical security prices and returns information. The research-quality data created by this transformational project has spawned a vast amount of scholarly research from several generations of academics.
More recently, CRSP extended its core data solutions with the introduction of the CRSP Indexes. CRSP’s new series of transparent and investable indexes provide the foundation for new areas of research and serve as benchmarks for investment vehicles, such as ETFs. The indexes demonstrate not only CRSP’s innovative thinking, but also the depth of our commitment to positively influence practices in the financial arena. Through our partnership with WRDS, academic researchers may now access important new microstructure data generated by calculating the real-time CRSP Indexes. These data open up new areas of research and will undoubtedly expand the frontiers of finance.
