As you’ll have seen in a number of recent posts, I’ve been talking a lot about the regulator and how increased regulatory scrutiny will impact asset managers in many areas, not least in data management.
Regulators are focusing on protecting investors and ensuring financial services providers are treating clients fairly.
Sales and marketing material is often a key element in the investment decision process., so data that is being communicated to the market by asset managers MUST be 100% accurate and consistent and in no way misleading.
I recently wrote an article on the topic which featured in a recent online edition of Securities Industry News and I am often asked questions by our customers and prospects about our views on upcoming regulatory trends and how they will impact the area of asset management. It’s also a subject we’re seeing more of in the news and on conference agendas.
As there seems to be so much interest, we decided to run a webcast on this topic on Wednesday 14th July (at 11:00 EST/ 16:00 BST / 17:00 CET). While I don’t claim to be an expert on the subject (far from it!), I have been following the goings on at the SEC. Finra and the BoE/FSA and I definitely think that some of the new regulations coming down the line will have significant impact on the industry. What I want to focus on in the webcast is how data management processes should be amended to ensure that you do not attract unwelcome attention from the regulator.
Areas I will touch on are as follows:
- Financial regulation reform is imminent – are you ready?
- How regulation will impact data management
- What does this mean for asset managers?
- How to ensure that your data management processes will measure up to regulatory scrutiny
- Tips on data governance
