In the modern economy, data is increasingly becoming a strategic asset. This is particularly true for the asset management industry, where data forms the backbone of the daily activities and internal processes necessary to guarantee best practices in portfolio management.
Asset managers are major users of a variety of data, including market data, index data and, increasingly, ESG data. EFAMA advocates for, and seeks to support members’ access to, high-quality, standardised and comparable data at a fair price. EFAMA also encourages the creation of a well-structured, reasonably priced consolidated tape fed by all trading venues and systematic internalisers for all financial instruments.
