fundinfo has acquired KiidLine in Paris and thereby further expands its presence in Europe. KiidLine is a service provider specialized in distributing publications of Asset Managers in France.
This acquisition drastically bolsters fundinfo’s coverage of the French fund market and also brings a local presence in Paris. KiidLine’s founder, Christophe Bossi, takes over the role of Sales Director France at the new subsidiary as of 1st November 2015.

Dissemination of Static Fund Data Now Even More Efficient – fundinfo Data Dissemination Event in Zurich
The time-consuming task of reformatting fund data and entering it in complex Excel templates for distributors is a thing of the past. On 24 September, fundinfo presented a practical solution: fundinfo Data Dissemination. Static fund data dissemination needs to be fast and efficient. Some 100 fund industry participants accepted fundinfo’s invitation and met at the Hyatt Hotel in Zurich in early autumn.
fundinfo recently organized together with Aberdeen Asset Management a thought leadership event in London. This event was hosted at Aberdeen’s premises and was a good success with 70 attendees from 44 fund companies. Various aspects of the growth of platforms in Europe and globally in view of regulation were discussed: MIFID II and RDR, industry changes with regards to digital trends and changes in consumer behaviour, to mention some of the topics covered.
This year we had double the reason to celebrate: fundinfo AG reached its 10-year anniversary and ifund services AG its 15-year anniversary. All 66 employees including their families met on the deck of Quai61 at lake Zurich to toast to with the 6 founders to the special occasion.
As of Monday 7 September 2015, fundinfo launched an additional country on www.fundinfo.com and www.etfinfo.com: France is now live as a new fund market. As a result, users of fundinfo’s online platform can now access fund documents, data, ratings and videos for funds registered for sale in France. fundinfo currently offers fund information for 11 countries in Europe and 2 in Asia.
