And the winner is... fundinfo sponsors the Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards 2018

This year's award ceremony for the prestigious Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards took place in Zurich on the 6th of February. This year, fundinfo was once again a sponsor of this important event for the fund community. Jan Giller, Head of Sales and Marketing, informed the attending guests about fundinfo’s new services as well as the current challenges encountered in daily business.

The industry as well as the fundinfo team have months of hard work behind them. Jan made it clear that the flood of data generated by MiFID II and PRIIPs can only be managed by process-standardisation and automation such as fundinfo provides. With more than 100,000 active share classes in fundinfo’s database (www.fundinfo.com), more than 170 new data fields were added since the beginning of the year which translates to an incredible 17 million new data fields to be processed. fundinfo therefore  only accepts data deliveries in the openfunds format (www.openfunds.org) in order to optimise quality and efficiency. 

The importance of fundinfo’s new News Dissemination Service which allows fund managers to deliver the most up-to-date fund news to the banks' advisory teams in near real-time was highlighted by recent market turmoils.

In a pleasant and elegant atmosphere, the occasion offered the opportunity to exchange ideas with business partners and colleagues and to end the evening with a traditional Swiss aperitif.
