Dissemination of Static Fund Data Now Even More Efficient – fundinfo Data Dissemination Event in Zurich

October 08, 2015 | Company | Events | Front | News |

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.

The workload is massively reduced: Data Dissemination comprises two services: dissemination to distributors via automated interfaces or via datahub.fundinfo.com. On our new web platform, we publish all static fund data collected and checked by fundinfo. A feature that users will find particularly useful is the overview of country registration information. All this data is available for download. Fund companies and distributors will find the web platform extremely time-saving and easy to access.

Fund data standardisation is a hot topic right now. How do you find a common denominator in the investment fund management industry and reduce complexity? fundinfo has taken the initiative and set up a working group together with three leading distributors. Several market participants from the fund industry already support the openfunds initiative. For more information about the project, please visit www.openfunds.org.

There is a pressing need for standardisation in the fund market. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all partners for their support and the many participants for their keen interest.
