Harry Rose, Managing Director

The use cases for data enrichment continue to multiply as asset managers and their clients look to get a truer view and greater understanding of their positions. Patti Coan explores the data enrichment tools at their disposal and how they are best leveraged.

Meet… Electra Govoni

electraEagle Investment Systems’ Strategic Project Manager, Electra Govoni, discusses her role as part of Eagle’s Diversity Council and the Women’s Initiative Network as well as how these efforts feed into Eagle’s innovative culture.

Q: You’ve been with Eagle for a decade now and serve as the chair of Eagle’s Diversity Council and the Women’s Initiative Network. Over that time, how have you seen the organization evolve as it relates to diversity?

A: It’s interesting because we’ve really matured as an organization overall, having grown from a tech startup when the company was founded to now representing a key part of BNY Mellon Technology Solutions. There are things that you really love that come with being part of a startup, particularly the innovation and creativity that define the culture. At the same time, the stability that comes with consistent and steady growth allows you to do a lot of different things as an organization that you couldn’t do otherwise. Still, there are challenges that every company faces as they mature. For instance, to maintain a truly innovative culture, you have to build an infrastructure to support that environment as you grow. Similarly, you have to implement processes that allow you to maintain the creativity that helped fuel your growth in the first place. The diversity program here at Eagle is a critical component in keeping that creative culture in place. It helps ensure that we’re bringing together people with different backgrounds and perspectives, all aligned towards helping our clients’ solve their business needs.
