What is the pipeline for AssetMetrix in terms of technology?
As you can imagine, we have a full pipeline and we are becoming more and more technological as a company and the industry is doing so as well. Automation is at the top of everything that we are doing. So we will strongly focus on automated data extraction and will enhance our already award-winning ESG module, combined with new data extraction automation capabilities. This will be machine learning AI-based obviously.
What distinguishes and differentiates us in our ambition to do aforementioned, is not only harvest the cost efficiencies by using automation in that area of data capture but at the same time upholding and improving the quality of the data points that are being captured and extracted. This is a major challenge in the industry today. Why? Because technologies, data extraction and machine learning are not perfect, and will not be for a while. We have seen a lot of players investing purely into technology, not looking at the processes or the additional potential of human factor that needs to play a role there and that is essential for us.
AssetMetrix intends to bring technology to our clients in such a way that it delivers the maximum quality in data and usability that we believe is required for what we are doing. So that is one of the things on our road map. Additionally, we will be moving our portals, our reporting and digital platforms, to a more real time data computation. Also, we will move to more interactive advanced analytics with simulations, stress tests and program planning. All of these, of course, on a more intuitive digital platform. We will refresh the usability and user experience of that platform at the same time to bring out a top-notch digital environment. Our goal is for people to use the platform because it delivers value AND it is easy to use.
