You wake up in the morning, scroll through the list of emails that filled your inbox, and scan the headlines. Another announcement of a merger & acquisition that’s being explored or executed. This doesn’t come as a surprise. PwC’s Mutual Fund Outlook notes an expectation that up to 20% of today’s mutual fund firms will be bought or eliminated by 2025. Financial Times article, M&A in 2021: asset management primed for consolidation, explains how we’ll see more of these in 2021 alone. As fewer players get bigger, so does their data and the colossal task of bringing it together to activate it for distribution. In this article, we share data considerations that will help you (as the acquirer) have a smoother transition with your next merger & acquisition.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are gaining popularity as passive, low-cost, high-performance investment vehicles. While being traded on the secondary market delivers accessibility to investors, you lose transparency on who owns your products. Data providers supply some clues, but challenges arise when you combine multiple sources to gain visibility. In this article, we unpack ETF data—highlighting the benefits and complexities of each source—and recommend three strategies based on where you are in the ETF market. The most effective strategy will right-size the number of sources balanced against the cost of combining them.

What learned lessons can we apply to make the next twelve months more valuable than the last?
