  • Damaged client relationships caused by inaccurate communications
  • Lost reputation if the above happens at any scale
  • Increased staff costs to monitor and resolve data-related issues
  • Reduced productivity from continuously allocating valuable resource to address data problems
  • Strategic decisions based on poor data can be damaging to both clients and the firm
