A better way to manage your investment data. For everyone from start-up fund managers to global investment institutions.
Take control, make more informed decisions and get ahead. With all of your investment data hosted in one place, LUSID removes the complexity, reduces your operating costs and gives you better access to your data.
Market and reference data are a major input into the investment management process - to identify, value and classify assets. The requirement for additional sources and the volume of market data are both growing concurrently, driven by new products, client requirements and regulatory demands. However, licensing costs for market data can be significant and failure to maintain ongoing compliance with restrictive licensing terms increases both business risk and the total cost of ownership.
LUSID is built from first principles and enables the effective tracking, management and control of market and reference data through:
- Immutable storage of data provenance (source) and lineage (transformation), both in permissions and at the point of use.
- Control and tracking of data entitlements at a granular level.
- Use of recipes to contrast and compare data sources making switching of data vendors practical and cost effective.
Built-in tracking for provenance and lineage through the use of recipes and ex-post through the run-time manifest.
By enforcing system configuration in one location, and transforming and normalising data at the point of use, LUSID provides immutable visibility of how a data item is derived.
LUSID’s API based access to market data allows data usage to be tracked and measured at the point of use.
LUSID can control access to vendor data sources by user, region, portfolio or any other client defined properties, and evidence this to the data owners.
