Effective and timely distribution of accurate fund data is crucial for fund managers. Your success depends on delivering this information to fund selectors and investment decision makers in a reliable manner. However, this seemingly simple task presents one of the main challenges in the fund industry.
Fund data dissemination – a constant challenge across the fund industry
With numerous players in the fund industry ecosystem, there is little consistency on how fund data is exchanged and disseminated. Different systems and the need for customised formats and templates make fund data dissemination a complex and rather manual process.
The challenge is further intensified by frequent regulatory changes, creating a greater administrative burden. Each update introduces a greater number of data fields that must be shared across the ecosystem.
Despite the acceleration in digitalisation in other parts of the business, a majority of fund manufacturers still rely on outdated and time-consuming data management and distribution methods.
This legacy approach impacts the ability to share fund data with distribution, platforms and vendors. It adds a significant burden on various business functions, including Operations and Sales, diverting their attention from their core responsibilities.
Here are some of the key challenges faced by fund managers in distributing data:
- Reaching key distributors
- Operational inefficiencies
- Maintaining data quality and accuracy
- Regulatory complexity
- Controlling fund data health after dissemination
- Lack of insight on consumption of fund data
