New State Street Research Reveals More than Half of Institutional Investors Plan to Outsource Their Data Management by 2021.

New State Street Research Reveals More than Half of Institutional Investors Plan to Outsource Their Data Management by 2021.

Almost 50 Percent Consider the Lack of Integration between Different Data Sources and Types to Be Their Top Data Management Challenge

State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT) announced today new research[1], which reveals that more than half (60 percent) of institutional investors surveyed plan to partly or fully outsource their data management over the next three years. Currently, 52 percent conduct all of their data management functions in house, however, by 2021, this is expected to fall to 36 percent with 15 percent aiming to fully outsource this function to an external partner.

“Explosion in data complexity has fundamentally changed the way asset owners and asset managers compete and operate,” said Subbiah Subramanian, global head of State Street Global Exchange’s data-as-a-service offering, DataGX(SM). “Today’s investment climate requires an overwhelming amount of data, and as the lines between front, middle and back office continue to blur, smarter data management is absolutely essential for effective performance and recognizing growth opportunities.”

  • Five years ago[2], 91% of respondents said they had all or most of the right talent in place to advance investment data and analytics strategy. Today, this figure has fallen to 60%
  • Over the next five years, 43% of respondents expect to rely on external partners as their source of performance and risk analytics
  • 68% of institutional investors feel comfortable storing data on the cloud

“In an environment of increasing regulatory requirements, and with low yields necessitating investors to look into alternative – and often more complex – sources of alpha, it seems clear that institutional investors will continue to prioritise data management and analytics to make better investment decisions, meet regulatory requirements, and gain competitive advantage,” said David Pagliaro, head of State Street Global Exchange, EMEA. “It appears the natural and most effective next stage of this technological evolution is for institutional investo
