GoldenSource is unique in its ability to power both financial institutions and shared utilities with an integrated Enterprise Data Management (EDM) platform that combines instrument, entity, and transaction data on a single platform and brings quality and transparency into the data supply chain. The GoldenSource EDM platform is a centralized and optimized strategic approach to data management that enables firms to improve data governance and meet risk and compliance demands.
“Our ability to carve out and shrink-wrap functionality from our modular platform ensures we are directly relevant to clients’ needs while also laying the foundation for a centralized capability,” asserts Eley. GoldenSource has the ability to accommodate the needs of both buy- and sell-side data management and can scale and perform as required. The firm’s new state-of-the-art tools cover all instruments and asset classes including equities, fixed income, structured products, funds and complex derivatives. In addition to market leading data visualization, queries and reports it gives data operations teams across the buy- and sell-side the power to configure validation and derivation rules and make screen and workflow modifications themselves, without IT intervention.

Moreover, GoldenSource Connections, an extensive set of interfaces (APIs), allows vendor data feeds to be directly plugged into a bank’s data management platform. When the data vendors change the structure of their feeds, it’s normally a job for IT to re-map the system. With GoldenSource Connections, GoldenSource maintains the mappings whenever changes are made by the data vendors.
“We listen to our clients and watch the industry for the latest regulations or financial products that require mastering within banks and buy-side firms,” states Eley. Forging ahead, the firm is also planning to extend its range of cost-effective and secure ways to operate cloud services and continue reshaping its business model for benefiting financial firms in managing and consuming data.
