Equities and Equities data - systemic and structural changes

Equities as an asset class continues to evolve driven in large part by government intervention in the form of regulation but also by overall global economics. Volumes are down as is the profitability of investment banks' equities businesses. Exchanges merge and demerge. These systemic and structural changes in the underlying markets impact the data that is generated and changes the data needs of both sell side and buy side consumers. Has the data industry rolled with the punches handed out, has it adapted and evolved effectively and quickly enough? If yes, then how and where - If no, then what needs to be done.

Responsible and Sustainable - modern drivers for investment decisions

Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) or Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) are high on the list of today's investment decisions. In this segment we explore and explain how such things are measured and reported. Data Quality is a challenge in any sector - perhaps even more so here. Providing and communicating meaningful and verifiable metrics (i.e. data) that the investment community can both use and rely upon is key. Who is demanding such data and why? Who is providing such data and how?
