fundinfo event Spain 2018

Hola! Full house at fundinfo's event in Madrid

With the recent introduction of PRIIPs and MiFID II, the challenge of managing fund data efficiently and without error has increased significantly. The need to exchange fund data in a uniform, industry-accepted format has now become a top priority for fund houses, fund distributors, and fund platforms around the world.

With this backdrop, our colleagues from fundinfo Spain recently hosted a well-attended fund data seminar for 80 key players in the Spanish fund industry in Madrid to discuss the challenges as well as opportunities facing today’s fund industry. With expert speakers from Banco Inversis, Fidelity International, openfunds and fundinfo, the need for a common data language was emphasised, and the openfunds standard (www.openfunds.org) presented and discussed. The open, extensible and license-free standard improves the quality, speed and efficiency of the dissemination, exchange and validation of fund data, and is emerging as the fund data standard of choice in the European and Asian fund markets.

Many thanks to our speakers and fundssociety.com who covered the event and published a summary online (Spanish).
