The board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) has issued a public statement outlining its priorities regarding data gaps in the asset management industry.
The public statement notes that a top priority for IOSCO is to address data gaps around open-ended regulated collective investment schemes (CIS). Another priority for IOSCO is to address the dearth of data on separately managed accounts generally and in relation to the leverage and derivative exposure of these vehicles on a global level. Though more detail are available on alterative funds than on other CIS, IOSCO considers that having consistent definitions for fund metrics across jurisdictions, particularly regarding leverage, should be a priority.
