How to calculate your true net worth?

This blog post is the fourth in a series in which I integrate all of my personal financial accounts with LUSID - our open, API-first, developer friendly investment data platform - to get a comprehensive picture of my net worth. In this post I will demonstrate the benefit of having integrated financial data from four different sources including:

  1. A Monzo Current Account
  2. A Vanguard ISA account
  3. An AMEX Credit Card
  4. An Australian Pension Fund (*this blog post)

Does your legacy IT system support your fund’s machine learning strategy?

Last week the Bank of England (BoE) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) released the results of their Machine learning in UK financial services joint survey. The paper confirmed what most of us already know, which is that machine learning (ML) is being used increasingly in the investment management industry. But it also confirmed a lesser talked about fact - legacy systems and data limitations are major barriers to implementing an effective machine learning strategy. In this blog post, we explore how the right technology can help investment managers overcome these barriers.

Change is inevitable. Growth is optional

Increasingly diversified investment strategies, closure of mutual funds, the rise of passively managed funds and companies racing to consolidate. It’s easy to say the asset management industry is slow to change but when you look at it from the outside, it’s being pummelled by change in all directions.

Do you even need an Investment Book of Record?

We’re a data driven company, we rank topics for this blog series using a system of up-/down-voting across all of our teams. One topic that was consistently upvoted was this one: "What is the true value of your IBOR (Investment Book of Record)?" But is that the right question to be asking?
