Connected data for Financial Services

Unlocking hidden value in market and reference data across the organisation

Our new survey explores how financial services firms around the world can add business value – including increasing revenues and boosting efficiencies – through the use of market and reference data and supporting data management tools.

Firms are falling nearly one-third short of their potential because they don’t have access to the data and tools they need to perform their jobs. This translates into trillions of dollars in lost opportunities.

Although spending on market and reference data is up over the past year and is set to continue to rise, according to the survey, firms are struggling with a range of challenges, from poor data governance to cultural differences between teams.

This new Refinitiv research examines the role that a connected data strategy across the front, middle and back office plays in closing the potential gap for financial services firms, and unlocking added business value.
