Today’s world notices and monitors a data revolution within all economic, financial and social areas. The quantity of data (as information blast) and its complexity has to be clarified, aggregated, analysed and explained in order to be exploited for smarter decisions and value creation.
Technology is obviously useful to manage this data flow, but asset owners and investment managers, enticed by this revolution, should not lose sight the basic mechanisms. Simple seems to be better: the first priority must be to identify the key concepts needed, to use them efficiently, then generate added-value analysis and deliver results.
In our financial context, the selection is limited to the choice of what you want to follow, the choice of power channels, or the choice of its accuracy (or reliability). Its use would be to get better informed, learn, add value, add a new point of view, optimize its decision support, or even improve the company organization and systems.
To consider the information as an asset…
Rational and pragmatic thoughts, strong grasp on financial notions, digital technologies and tailor-made solutions are an optimised mix to bring innovation and value within the Investment Management universe. Through innovation, results should be complete and subdued, appropriate in terms of content with smart indicators.
Hence, the focus should be to guide investors and advisors to use more synthetic and pertinent information to better decide and manage their estate/portfolio.
Smarter performance and estate sustainability will result from a better understanding and more relevant information.
