Aim Software and Interactive Data Launch Sixth Edition of the Aim Global Reference Data and Risk Management Survey

Aim Software today announced the launch of its sixth international reference data and risk management survey. It is designed to provide insights into the trends, challenges and planned investments for reference data automation and risk management in 2009. The survey is sponsored by Interactive Data (Europe).

As the global financial markets become accustomed to a dramatically changed environment, financial institutions around the world are carefully evaluating their strategies in risk and data management in 2009. For some, the goal is cost cutting while others see the current situation as an opportunity to enhance their infrastructures.

Against this challenging background, Aim Software (www.aimsoftware.com) has launched the sixth edition of the Aim Global Reference Data and Risk Management Survey. “Given the positive feedback we received from the market in the last few years, we decided to conduct the Aim Global Reference Data and Risk Management Survey for the sixth consecutive time in 2009,” explains Martin Buchberger, head of marketing and sales at Aim Software. “New regulations and conditions are shaping financial institutions’ approach to data and risk management this year. The survey will provide insight into the driving factors and repercussions of this changing environment and show how banks and financial institutions cope with the new situation. Never before have reference data and risk management been more topical.”

The 2009 edition of the Aim Global Reference Data and Risk Management Survey examines this year’s developments and tries to distinguish trends from hypes. The results from previous years proved that this research spots most of the developments before they became crucial, thus giving financial institutions the chance to see where they stand in their own efforts.

Data and risk managers are invited to participate by completing a five minute online questionnaire at: http://www.aimsoftware.com/topics/survey2009. Participants benefit from a free, comprehensive benchmarking to the rest of the market with country specific drill downs and charts.
