Data Services

Increase business value and operational efficiency with timely, high-quality data

Leave your data aggregation and validation challenges behind

Data collection and aggregation is an often overlooked yet crucial component of reconciliation, settlements, compliance, reporting, and many other control processes and workflows. Financial services organisations and service providers can become overburdened with establishing and maintaining direct links with data providers on their own, which can increase risk and reduce staff productivity – especially as business complexity and volumes increase.

The good news is, we can solve that problem for you.

Our Data Services provide a complete source of accurate, reliable data that consolidates information on securities, cash positions, transactions, and trade fail investigations for buy-side investment managers, wealth managers, and service providers alike. This unique service collects, validates and enriches a wide variety of data from third-party providers at any frequency, regardless of format and protocol.

Drive enterprise efficiency with aggregated and integrated data

With Data Services, you’ll start each and every day with confidence and ease, knowing your data feeds are all up and running, so you can focus completely on running your business.

Connecting with more than 4500 unique data feeds from over 1500 global sources, we move about $20 trillion in assets per day, representing more than 110,000 accounts with an average account size of over $150 million. We support reconciliation, NAV, fund accounting, performance, compliance, client fee billing – and many more processes and workflows – to save your firm time, cost and risk while enabling your team to focus on higher value work.

“Through their collective knowledge of post-trade processing and working with so many custodians and other data suppliers in the industry, the team are clearly experts when it comes to data and reconciliation workflows. Understanding our process and all the custodians we work with and the data each provides is a key advantage for us.”
