Recorded Webinar: The impact of GDPR on data monetisation

27 September 2018

Data monetisation has become key to revenue growth at financial institutions, but how can they get it right and achieve competitive advantage, and how will General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) impact their progress?

This webinar will discuss why and how financial firms are monetising data, and detail the steps they must take to be successful, including getting internal data in order before offering external data-based services, considering the potential of partnerships with other data providers, and getting the business involved.

Following the introduction of GDPR earlier this year, the webinar will also consider how the regulation is hindering or helping these efforts, and what types of technology solutions firms can implement to monetise data successfully while staying within the boundaries of GDPR.

Listen to this webinar to find out more about:

  • Progress of data monetisation in capital markets
  • Best practice approaches for successful programmes
  • Challenges and opportunities presented by GDPR
  • Technology solutions for compliant monetisation
  • How to gain market advantage from data monetisation
