The financial index ecosystem has become modern. Passive investment strategies have grown. Success depends on earning and keeping trust that the system works — all the time — without broken links in the chain. Investors demand it, competitors develop it, and regulators expect it. The complexity comes in bringing it all together with reasonable assurance that your objectives and the objectives of internal and external stakeholders are met.
So the burden is placed on the asset management community to adapt. And quickly.
With the pace of disruption and volatility, it can be challenging to see all of the moving pieces that shaped the challenge facing asset managers.
Operational issues and transparency concerns associated with the process by which indexes are constructed and used have been brewing for years.
