As regulators and investors impose increasingly stringent transparency and reporting requirements, asset managers face new challenges in all aspects of data management. Regulatory and investor demands are substantially altering the needs for data and effective tools and metrics, with potential significant implications on infrastructure and processes.

Simultaneously, increased margin pressure for fund managers, resulting in part from the current low interest rate environment and modest capital market expectations, has encouraged the growth of passively managed funds as well as alternative style funds. These innovative approaches also require new uses of data that can be costly to build, often requiring significant upfront investments in infrastructure and operations.
