Driving Change: Data Management and Data Governance Priorities of Tier 2 and Tier 3 Asset Managers

Data increasingly underpins every aspect of the financial markets. This trend has only intensified as financial regulators have strengthened reporting and transparency requirements in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

Buy-side organizations are finding new ways to compete and comply in this environment, and the development of a robust data management strategy has become increasingly important to their survival and success.

This white paper examines the results of a recent survey conducted by IHS Markit and WatersTechnology. It explores the data management capabilities and attitudes of Tier 2 and Tier 3 asset managers; the growing significance of data governance; and the need for further integration of data across firms.
