Leveraging technology to support the ETF industry


S&P Global Market Intelligence | Best ETF Back Office Tech Provider | Best ETF Middle Office Tech Provider

Aisling O’Boyle, Executive Director, Global Head of EBS Product Management at S&P Global Market Intelligence (SPGMI) explains how the size and scale of the product has lockstep grown with the ever-expanding ETF industry. “Our strengths are apparent in our ability to support over 13,000 ETPs globally across all assets classes and over 450,000 index and index variants.” We offer a rich history for ETFs, and a daily composition that produces over 220+ data points which our clients have entrusted us to provide for over 20 years.

As far as trends are concerned, market participants continue to collaborate bringing innovative products to the ETF industry, O’Boyle explains. Some of these innovations came from the dynamic regulatory backdrop such as the approval of the first spot Bitcoin ETFs, single stock leveraged ETFs, defined outcome ETFs and ETFs build on complex option overlay strategies.

Just as these novel products hit the market, we are ready to support the ETF ecosystem by providing bespoke solutions to issuers, liquidity providers, traders, researchers and more. “The core of our services and capabilities are built on our goal to distribute data that is aggregated, validated and enriched.” From our iNAV+ product which is an independent method to determine the health of an ETF, providing a second-by-second fair valued pricing engine, capable of supporting a wide range of ETF asset classes, including cryptocurrency and option strategies offering an unmatched transparency, to our daily PCF generation engine, we are here to support all participants with various use cases.

We are growing our business by leveraging the latest technologies to ensure composition data is delivered in a timely manner and at the highest quality possible. This includes incorporating AI into workflows to enrich ETF data, using latest delivery methods to transfer the data at low latency and upgrading our infrastructure as new technologies become available. At SPGMI, we are keen to offer products and services that are uniquely positioned through a combination of various datasets such as the amalgamation of ESG and short interest data with our ETF composition data.

O’Boyle states: “I firmly believe that the ETF industry will continue to innovate by offering products which were previously not accessible to the public and I am just as confident we will be right along with the practitioners to support them.” We truly value the collaborative relationship we have with our clients. This comes in the form of knowledge sharing with the end users and our focus to continuously improve our product with our client’s feedback.

It’s a privilege to have won these awards, and we are graciously thankful as it further showcases our commitment to our clients. “We are inspired and motivated by our clients in the ETF ecosystem and will continue to invest in our product, technology, and people.”
