This webcast, sponsored by data management specialist IHS Markit, focuses on the extent to which clean, timely and accurate data allows buy-side firms to manage various disparate downstream processes, including pre-trade decision support, performance and attribution, client reporting, and risk management.
What has become patently clear over the last few years across the buy side is the extent to which data drives every business process. It therefore stands to reason that the cleaner, timelier and more accurate organizations' data is, the better managed their downstream processes are, from pre-trade decision support, performance and attribution on the one hand to reporting, risk management and various data analytics activities on the other. The old adage of "junk in junk out" has never been more pertinent to data management than it is right now. This webcast focuses on the data management and governance trends across the buy side, the challenges and opportunities facing buy-side firms when it comes to managing ever-increasing data volumes, the importance for executive buy-in when it comes to data management projects, and the options available to buy-side firms when it comes outsourcing certain aspects of their data management functions.
