The asset management industry has always consumed data. The quantitative investment management depended on plentiful supplies of the price data that financial markets produce. But prices and statistics are now being supplemented by social media, satellite and mobile telephone data that highlights investment opportunities rather than exploitable patterns in the markets. But data is no longer the preserve of portfolio managers. The growing quantities of digital information are now seen as vital to decision-makers in corporate strategy, sales and marketing, client service, risk management, distribution, operations and compliance as well. All large asset managers are now embarked on data projects designed to gather, normalise and integrate multiple internal and external data sources to raise process efficiency and employee productivity as well improve investment performance. The principal factor behind this growing interest is the need, as active investment strategies give way to lower margin passive investing, to control costs and lift output. This Future of Finance webinar will explore what asset managers are doing in data management, now and in the future.
