We have heard the term Investment Book of Records (IBOR) in the City a great deal in recent months, to the point that it is the latest investment management acronym to appear on many 2014 / 15 books of work. IBOR is now seen as a critical operational requirement to ensure the integrity of data for the Investment Management community and its associated portfolio managers. Is IBOR itself a buzzword designed to satisfy the requirements of the FCA? In its most simplistic form it is about being able to reflect an accurate and comprehensive investment view.

Is the investment world re-labelling an old approach or just implementing common sense? Should it be seen as an operational cost or perhaps a way of building end-to-end up to the minute operational insight from front to back office, whilst keeping the regulators happy as a secondary consequence?
