Data used to generate BTM comes from specialised units
1) Macro forecasting (market data) 2) Quantitative teams (asset data) 3) Combining these to make return predictions + correlations for assets 4) Use this to make alpha predictions

BTM: takeaway questions
1) How much does it cost to construct (A) (fees) given its appraisal ratio (value-added) 2) How much do we trust our inputs? (accuracy of forecasts for alpha/ res risk)
