JP Morgan launches data management platform for the buy-side
“Data management is a key strategic focus for our clients and we are committed to supporting them on their data journey.”
J.P. Morgan’s Securities Services has launched a data platform that delivers end-to-end data management and reporting solutions for institutional investors.
Going by the name of “Fusion by J.P. Morgan” (Fusion), the solution allows clients to integrate and combine data from multiple sources into a single data model.
The buy-side can leverage the data platform to scale and reduce costs as well as to unlock timely analysis and insights. Its high-quality data and governance framework can be used across the investment lifecycle.
Fusion’s data catalog, including the content produced by the bank’s Global Research and Markets franchise, is available online and can be browsed for immediate consumption and integration using the platform’s APIs.
Fusion combines position and transaction information with the client’s own data and vendors
Teresa Heitsenrether, Global Head of Securities Services, J.P. Morgan, said: “Data management is a key strategic focus for our clients and we are committed to supporting them on their data journey. We’ve established a dedicated Data Solutions business within Securities Services led by industry experts, and through Fusion, we are developing a differentiated, cloud-native platform to help clients manage and leverage their data in a scalable, efficient way.”
Fusion’s open data architecture supports flexible distribution, including partnerships with cloud and data providers, all managed by J.P. Morgan data experts. Building on Securities Services’ global operating model and rich data foundation as an industry leading custodian, fund administrator and middle office outsourcing provider, Fusion will combine position and transaction information with the client’s own data, as well as data from trusted third-party vendors and partners. The platform’s single data model allows clients to extend the breadth and depth of their data, and query the relevant information with powerful analytics tools to aid in decision-making.
Gerard Francis, Head of Data Solutions, Securities Services, J.P. Morgan, commented: “Investment managers use a wide range of data sources with varying formats to run their business but the effort to gather, clean, and organize this data is often manual and resource intensive. We are designing Fusion to remove the friction and make data instantly usable for our clients. By partnering with leading industry providers, we are streamlining the data onboarding process, enabling clients to browse, visualize and access their data in the cloud or directly within their own applications”
