Solving the Problem of Reference Data
An ISITC EUROPE/CISI joint Live Webcast – Solving the Problem of Reference Data
Tuesday 11th November – 14.00pm -15:00 (UK BST)
The problem of reference data, in terms of “dirty data”, has been estimated to cost the industry between 15% -25% of its revenue, but improving the quality has posed significant challenges for the industry for decades. Despite investment in new technologies and collaborations across the financial markets. The ability to share and exchange accurate reference data between financial firms and their service providers, is still a very thorny problem. Should there be a central repository of reference data, or can modern technology like Blockchain/DLT hold a long looked for industry solution? Could existing structure organisations for example a CSD be a central holder and distributer, or should there be a shared network distributing daily reference data updates?
This session will aim to highlight problems and solutions.
