In today's digital landscape, the ubiquity of data is undeniable. The strategic organization of data is paramount for business success. For years, companies have aspired to be data-driven, and asset management firms are no exception. However, the path to data-driven success in asset management has encountered unique challenges.

Asset managers require data that is easily accessible, secure, comprehensible and conducive to streamlined reporting. Yet, the explosive growth of data has brought about legitimate concerns related to data ownership and privacy. These concerns echo the sentiments expressed in 2022 Harvard Business Review article, which adds to the ‘growing concerns regarding privacy and data ownership’. Likewise, data security and preservation have been emphasized by institutions like UK, Imperial College London that expressed ‘keeping data safe and secure is an important aspect of good research data management’.

Investing in robust data management is essential to give regulated firms transparency, control and accessibility. A well-structured data management strategy not only helps firms fulfil their data governance obligations to investor and the regulators but also enables them to exercise control over data access. By layering access to data by job roles and responsibilities, firms can help to mitigate against both internal and external data access issues and security.
