Breakfast Event - fundinfo Data Dissemination

May 22, 2015 | Company | Events | Front | News | Platform |

On Wednesday 20 May 2015, we introduced our new “fundinfo Data Dissemination” service (for the dissemination of static fund data) at fundinfo’s latest breakfast presentation event. The event was held at the MainNizza in Frankfurt am Main and was attended by around 50 guests from the fund industry.

fundinfo Data Dissemination aims to assist fund companies and distributors in their daily exchange of static fund data. This is a crucial service given the sharp rise in recent years in the volume of data and the growing need for high data quality and fast data transfer. Nevertheless, a large amount of static fund data is still sent manually via Excel spreadsheets, which represents a major challenge for all market participants.

Our new data platform datahub.fundinfo.com, with fully automated data-exchange interfaces, helps solve this problem.

In addition to presenting our new service, we also reported on the progress of the openfunds fund data initiative (www.openfunds.org/) and explained, by way of numerous examples, the ever increasing importance of supplying fund providers with accurate, complete and up-to-date static fund data.

We would like to thank all those who attended the presentation: we value your questions and suggestions!
