The buy-side is in an era of intense change. Regulatory pressure is increasing. Industry-wide consolidation is rampant. Outsourcing non-core processes is now commonplace. Demands for more speed and greater transparency are rising. And the entire operational role of data is transforming.

To compete effectively, buy-side firms must find a way to do more with less. This is the only way to deal with the implications of these trends. Namely, increased fee compression, higher data volumes and more complex data, and redundant, disparate workflows.

Improving efficiency requires investment in technology and operations. To succeed, firms need a partner with experience and expertise in both domains. MSCI is that partner, combining three core offerings to help you solve complex operational challenges. With MSCI Managed Solutions, you can expect:
