We benchmark everyday. Our consultants are gauging operations practices out in the field. Our analysts are comparing systems functionality through research and vendor demos. Because we are continuously exposed to technology advances, operations practices, and industry trends, we are perfectly positioned to provide you with a detailed understanding of how you stack up to your peers, from many different angles.

In today’s increasingly competitive environment, it is more important than ever for investment firms to have a good understanding of their position relative to their peers.  It is good to know how effective your firm’s processes are, but even better to know how and where you can focus resources for improvement.

CutterBenchmarking is the leading benchmarking service that focuses on investment systems and operations. We provide a meaningful perspective that enables firms to compare their investment processes to their peers and to “best in class” capabilities.

Current Study

Data Management

As the volume of data used in asset management firms has grown exponentially, so has the need to effectively manage, store, and distribute it. This CutterBenchmarking survey will reveal how your data management practices measure up against our Capability Model and other participating firms. Furthermore, by comparing the results to similar surveys we conducted over the last six years, we will be able to analyze trends over time.  

The survey will cover categories across Cutter's Four Cornerstones of Data Management as well as across Data Domains:

Data Governance

Data management roles and responsibilities, as well as the level of sponsorship, adoption, and enforcement of your data governance.

Data Architecture

You firm's data management applications and stores, as well as data integration between business applications.

Data Stewardship

The level of documentation of data management processes and how your firm manages metadata.

Data Delivery

The resources and tools used to control access to and distribute data to your firm's consumers.

Data Domains

How your firm sources and ensures quality data by domain (Security Master, Client, Product Structure and Account, Trade, Accounting, and Performance and Analytics).
