Customization of Data
in Private Markets

Data is increasingly becoming a crucial factor in the changing
nature of private market investing.

January 2022

Managers need to be more efficient at managing, analyzing and reporting the vast quantities of complex and unstructured data related to existing and prospective investments.

Improvements in these areas could be a significant driver of alpha, but more pressingly, asset owners are demanding an enhancement in data management. They need greater transparency on holdings, the investment process, costs and on sustainability criteria, placing tremendous strain on the existing reporting capabilities of many asset managers.

Listen to Marianne Oar, managing director, Private Markets product manager at State Street, discuss these data challenges at the Talking Hedge webinar with Mark Filstrup, head of Platform and Alternatives Architecture at AllianceBernstein, Jennifer Tribush, global head of Alternatives Product, State Street and Tom Vogt, vice president, Customer Success at Mercatus, as they discuss findings from our recent survey of 170 asset owners and managers in the private markets.
