Capital markets firms are under pressure to realize the latent potential held within their investment research as a means of enhancing productivity and operational effectiveness while gaining an investment edge. The key to meeting that challenge is discovering hidden connections within structured and unstructured data to support the pursuit of alpha—and, in doing so, monetizing investment research.
Key topics discussed:
- Capital markets firms’ current models and procedures for sourcing, storing, managing and sharing investment research internally and externally
- The effectiveness of firms’ research tools when informing investment decisions and the pursuit of alpha
- Business and operational benefits of developing and deploying technologies that allow firms to maximize the value of their investment research
- Key themes from research carried out by WatersTechnology and MarkLogic around current investment research practices, including the extent to which firms store investment data in disparate systems, the challenges they face in surfacing data and technologies available to address those challenges.
