Investment Portfolio Data Management
November 14, 2011

What is it about managing portfolios that leads to a characteristic set of data management requirements? Most significantly, it is that investors demand elaborate investment accounting and sophisticated performance measurement to achieve total return or mandate-specific return objectives, protecting themselves from unfavorable outcomes as they entrust their wealth to hired managers.

Deriving from investor protection considerations, portfolio data discipline is imposed from the outside by industry and regulatory standards like GIPSŪ, Sarbanes-Oxley and Solvency II. Beyond its consumer protection role, investment portfolio data helps fund managers devise and direct an investment process that underpins a competitive offering to the marketplace.

The paper presented here examines the particulars of data management among investment managers. It adopts as a framework a matrix of four activities operating on three subject areas.
