The importance of robust fund oversight has long been well known. Recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has underscored the need for investment managers to further increase operational efficiency and capitalize on opportunities faster while not neglecting their oversight responsibilities.

A survey of investment professionals in the UK, Continental Europe, the US, and Asia found that while technology is making a difference in how firms conduct oversight, much scope for improvement remains, particularly in the area of NAV Oversight and Contingent NAV.

Key findings and themes include:

  • NAV Oversight: 49% of respondents still rely on spreadsheet checks. Just 15% use full shadow NAV, while only 13% use contingent or back-up NAV.
  • Technology: More than half (53%) do not use workflow and exception management as part of their NAV production process.
  • ESG: Data is the biggest challenge around ESG, more specifically lack of standards (51%), data availability (49%) and data inconsistency (41%).

The survey, conducted by Funds Europe on behalf of Linedata, engaged senior investment professionals at buy-side firms across Europe, North America, and Asia.
