Business Case: Investment Data Highway for Asset Managers

Much of the middle-office operational infrastructure has grown up organically and is hard to maintain. It is also expensive and error prone.

With new asset classes, new vendors emerging, new sources of input data, new regulatory mandates, more stringent risk management & performance attribution, and more demanding client reporting, accurate and timely data is a clearly a critical success factor.
