Enterprise Data Management (EDM)

Charles River’s EDM solution provides investment managers with the breadth and accuracy of data required to properly support investment decision making. Firms can more easily manage complex data from multiple sources, tailor data sets for different users, and lower operational risk. As the biggest consumer of data in the front and middle office, Charles River has a deep understanding of buy-side data requirements and is uniquely equipped to translate, validate and promote data to ensure necessary completeness.

Purpose-built for investment managers, Charles River’s EDM solution has the necessary depth to meet the data requirements for each instrument type. This provides front and middle office systems with the requisite data to support even the most challenging fixed income and derivatives instruments. The combination of Charles River’s Investment Book of Record (IBOR) and EDM provides a complete foundation spanning security, pricing, analytics, model, benchmark, account, position, trade, and tax lot data.
