Robustness, scalability, flexibility ─ these words have come to define what buy-side firms seek when looking to optimize system landscapes. A higher degree of integration harmonizes the view on data, increases data operability and can have a positive impact on a firm's alpha generation and return. Yet many organizations still maintain disparate systems that lack the oversight and transparency essential for judicious investment decision-making, effective risk management, and compliance with growing regulatory burdens. Without an accurate overview of investment positions and investable cash, asset management firms are operating sub-optimally, not only in the front office, but across the organization as a whole.

Enter the investment book of record, which has recently been at the heart of much debate. This webinar explores how an IBOR not only remedies these deficiencies, but how it can also lead to a source of sustainable competitive advantage and future-proof buy-side firms' operations for years to come.

-- Making the business case for an IBOR in today's challenging operating environment.
-- The functions and attributes of a typical IBOR.
-- The challenges around implementing an IBOR and what buy-side firms typically overlook when developing an IBOR.
--How an IBOR changes the daily behavior across an organization, especially in the front office.
-- Is it feasible or even possible to generate granular, intra-day position-level and cash snapshots?
