Best Credit Data, a provider of evaluated bond pricing and analytics data, today announced that Tom Metzold has joined the firm as Senior Managing Director.  

Metzold has extensive experience in the Municipal bond market with 28 years at Eaton Vance, where he had served as co-director of Municipal Investments and portfolio manager on Eaton Vance’s municipal bond team until July 2015. Most recently, Metzold was Head of Capital Markets at National Public Finance Guarantee Corp.

Metzold has been in the investment management industry since 1987, when he joined Eaton Vance as a high yield municipal bond analyst covering the health care and hospital sectors. He later became a municipal bond portfolio manager in 1991. Prior to Eaton Vance, he was a financial analyst at General Electric Company from 1981 to 1986.

Metzold earned a B.S. in finance from Siena College in 1980 and an M.B.A. with a concentration in finance from the State University of New York at Albany in 1987. He is a CFA charterholder and is a member of the Municipal Analysts Group of New York (MAGNY) and the National Federation of Municipal Analysts.

Metzold’s commentary has appeared in Barron’s, Bloomberg, The Bond Buyer, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, Reuters Financial Report, and The Wall Street Journal, among other publications.

“Tom’s commitment to Best Credit validates our strategy and market position as a disrupter in evaluated pricing and will help support our ambitious growth plans,” said Jimmy Suppelsa, Co-Founder of Best Credit Data. “As our resident muni expert, Tom brings an additional layer of quality assurance to our algorithms and added confidence to our clients.”

 “I am really looking forward to working with the Best Credit Data ("BCD") team; I am very impressed with their pricing model and their ability to use 'big data analytics' in an industry that has seen little technological change in the past 20 years," said Metzold.  "The market has already begun to embrace their unique model/algorithm and I believe that the new wave of technology being utilized in the capital markets will continue to improve the accuracy and timeliness of evaluated pricing."
