What is a contact object?

A contact object contains information on a person in your company or another.

Data associated with a contact includes first name, surname, phone, email and qualifications. A contact can be linked to a firm, strategy or fund, depending on his or her primary responsibility. For example, a fund manager will be linked to a specific fund, while a CEO is more likely to be linked to a firm.
