[VIDEO] Whether we seek to trade profitably or to do the post-trade processing efficiently, sourcing and dealing with data sets is pretty much what fills our work day – a fact that has only been emphasised by recent reforms and trends in the ESG space. On stage with PostTrade 360° Amsterdam, asset management representatives Gijs Spijkers of Van Lanschot Kempen and Ward Willemsen of APG looked into how to adapt to it – and benefit.
The session, led by insight firm Alpha FMC’s Angie Adams, looked into what good ESG data management and strategy is about, focusing not least on the link between data analytics and business strategy. However, the cost of market data is growing – an issue that takes tackling, too.
Moderator Angie Adams is Data Consulting Manager, Alpha Financial Markets Consulting.
Gijs Spijkers is CPO, Investment Management & Analytics, VLK Investment Management.
Ward Willemsen is Team Manager Data Management, APG.
