SmartStream RDU—More Pertinent Now than Ever

SmartStream RDU—More Pertinent Now than Ever

This whitepaper outlines the history of the Reference Data Utility (RDU), charts its development, scrutinizes its underlying technology and articulates the business benefits that users can reasonably expect on the back of subscribing to it

The benefits of the data utility proposition are clear: operational efficiency, cost reduction, shortened time to market, significantly improved data quality, reduced operational risks and access to a support team of subject matter experts with an intimate understanding of clients’ challenges based on first-hand experience addressing those same issues while working on the buy side and sell side. These benefits were factored into the collective thinking of Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and a third tier-one bank when the three institutions entered into a joint venture with SmartStream in 2009 that led to the establishment of the RDU as a means of improving the quality of their listed derivatives data.
