EDM Council Adds 12 More Members to Champion the Ref Data Cause

The Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Council added 12 new member institutions to its ranks to help it champion the cause for industry collaboration on data management issues. Michael Atkin, managing director of the not for profit organisation, reckons the new additions demonstrate the rising importance of data management in the market.

The new members comprise: Asset Control, CounterpartyLink, Eaton Vance Managed Investments, Fidelity Investments, Interactive Data Corporation, Invesco, National Australia Bank, NewRiver Investor Communications, LakeFrontData Consulting, PolarLake, Standard Bank & Trust and SIX Telekurs Group.

“As data management becomes both an increasingly important regulatory and business priority, financial institutions are realising the importance of EDM to their operational infrastructure,” Atkin explains. “Market participants are anticipating adjustments in the global regulatory landscape, and will begin embarking on projects to implement standard tags and identifiers to trace, analyse, compare and oversee market operations.”

The EDM Council has indicated that it hopes the new members will also add value to the breadth and depth of its Semantics Repository, which it launched in draft format earlier in the year.
