AsianInvestor hosted this webinar to discuss how asset owners, fund managers and service providers are using analytics. Moderated by AsianInvestor's Jame DiBiasio, the discussion features Marko Milek, head of State Street Global Exchange in Asia Pacific, who has conducted research into the buy-side's implementation of data and what that means for business cultures.

Also joining the discussion are Peng Chen, chief executive for Asia ex-Japan at Dimensional Fund Advisors, a $400 billion money manager that has long experience with using data analytics; and by Campbell McCulloch, head of investment operations at Australia's Future Fund, who has been an active implementer of data tools over the past several years.

With lively questions from the audience, the talk raises surprising observations about attitudes toward integrating 'big data' into asset management, and where the industry is headed.
