How to Reduce the Complexity of Managing Your Data

Read the Data Complexity Case Study

PROBLEM: You’re Concerned About the Complexity of Managing Benchmark and Reference Data

As the number of indexes and benchmarks continues to grow, so does their complexity. Investment managers have to use a growing range of published indexes, but also more complex custom benchmarks and blends.

  • It seems likely that the overall level of complexity will continue to increase, and this will affect all investment managers
  • This is far more than an operational problem — because benchmarks and reference data have become critical drivers of investment management success

Your challenges likely include:

  • Creating and monitoring the use of indexes and customized and blended benchmarks
  • The timeliness of getting quality data into the business – and validating, remediating, reformatting, and customizing for each system
  • Managing relationships with index data providers
