ANALYSTS

Most of Aite Group's analysts have 10 or more years of direct experience working for financial institutions, technology vendors, or both. Their hands-on experience gives them an intimate knowledge of the world and contexts in which our customers operate, and it allows them to offer actionable—not pie-in-the-sky—recommendations as they research, consult, and partner with our clients.
