Canadian bank establishes ‘Centre of Excellence’ for data
Financial institutions worldwide are increasingly recognising the value in building a scalable and sustainable data management platform to reduce operational costs, improve time to market, and ensure
accurate, timely and consistent data across systems.
One such organisation is a major international bank in Canada, which has established an internal data management function with Asset Control over the last 7 years to support the effective use of master data covering capital markets and wealth management.
- The bank has created a ‘true’ EDM system with AC Plus, whereby its Centralised Security Master department provisions data to most business units (35-40 systems/consumers) across wealth and capital markets
- The bank now uses AC Plus as the automated technology platform to manage its data content
- On a day-to-day basis, the system collects, loads, cleanses, stores and manages 50+ data feeds from sources including Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, ICE Data Services (IDC), ratings agencies, and a range of smaller data vendors
- Approximately 90% of end of day reference data received from Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters feeds goes through AC Plus
