Prepared for ETF Expansion?
The popularity and utility of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to implement investment strategies is well established and one of the most rapidly evolving dynamics across our industry.
Utilizing these products to gain inexpensive and liquid exposure to new geographies and diverse asset classes is a clear benefit, but it must be balanced with the requirements of timely and accurate exposure monitoring and insight.
Given the fragmentation and relative maturity of ETF usage across regions, there are disperse regulatory frameworks and market utilities that impact data consumption patterns, use cases and associated challenges across the investment life cycle. There are thousands of ETFs on the market and no standardized data formats or delivery channels. Attempting to source, normalize, validate and deploy this data across the varied enterprise stakeholders quickly becomes a considerable challenge. In this environment, producing accurate, system-ready composition data requires deep relationships with issuers and experience working with the data.
