Data and Models

History of MarketBuilder and its models

MarketBuilder, Deloitte MarketPoint’s fundamental analysis and economic modeling software, was designed to model the interconnected global nature of today’s commodity markets. It emerged from a set of regional economic models implemented by MarketPoint, Incorporated and its sibling company, Altos Management Partners. These models were critical factors in the decision making made by the energy industry over a period of two decades. In 2010, Deloitte acquired the assets and retained key people from these two firms to form Deloitte MarketPoint.

Data and Models

The current MarketBuilder suite of models includes updated versions of these original models, which Deloitte MarketPoint continues to expand, improve, and adapt to the ever-changing commodity markets. Over the years these models have been used broadly throughout the energy market and demonstrated to be accurate and reliable.
