State of the dv01 Union 2021

If 2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges and resilience, then 2021 was a year of breakthrough success: dv01’s growth has accelerated with the market’s recovery, and remote work is now core to our culture.

We made excellent strides this year toward our vision of building the most comprehensive ABS and MBS data library. We penetrated two new markets (autos and solar), released three industry benchmark datasets (Prime Jumbo, and Subprime and Prime Auto), onboarded over 200 securitzations, and partnered with two high-profile mortgage clients (Redwood and Invictus). Even with all this happening, we made great progress on our ESG and Agency offerings. Thanks to the exceptional work done by the ESG and Agency teams, we’ve been able to flex our data science intelligence and advanced technological capabilities to clients. 

We achieved these milestones because of the people and our culture. The remote/hybrid workplace experiment is now status quo at dv01. We’ve taken advantage of a broader talent pool—and unintentionally built a consortia in DC and Austin—which has allowed us to recruit highly talented team members who may have never ventured into New York. We’ve also fostered a remote-first culture by making empathy, transparency, and shared purpose at the center of our community. Working from home isn’t easy and can be stressful, but our ability to communicate, keep morale high, and support employee wellness gives me confidence that remote work is the right fit for us.

The team’s hustle and commitment continues to be evident and I’m looking forward to crushing next year.
