GFI Data Council
Wouldn’t it be great if …we could all agree?
Data means many things to many people – highly sensitive, enormously helpful. Easily misrepresented.
At findexable we know that insights are only as good as the data that feeds them. And in turn that the data is only as useful as the standards they sit on.
But that’s only part of the story.
We also realise that a useful, reliable index needs transparency and agreement on the standards, categories and definitions it’s using to categorise fintech activity. That’s where the Data Governance Council comes in.
The Council is designed to represent the diversity of the industry – helping to agree standards for the way fintech companies are classified and suggesting modifications to the Index algorithm as new datasets become available.
Importantly, at a time when data is too often used as a tool for manipulation, the Council will act as guardians – to ensure that new data, if introduced, doesn’t pollute our ecosystem scoring or interfere with Index rankings. That we are complying with the rules on data use and storage. And that industry insights are built on solid foundations.
