Zurich-based fund information provider fundinfo has collaborated with F2C, a fund data management provider based in Luxembourg, to offer asset managers a single offering for their fund data management, publication and dissemination needs.
fundinfo offers services for publishing and disseminating fund data as well as analytical tool to assess investor trends.
F2C offers a fund data management platform, Publifund, along with report generation, registration as well as notification capabilities.
Commenting on the partnership, fundinfo CEO Philipp Portmann said: “Asset managers continue to favour outsourcing but are keen to keep things simple post MiFID II. They want to reduce the number of external service providers they use and have a “golden copy”, single source of data to reduce complexity and improve both transparency and reporting.
“Joining forces with F2C enables us to offer exactly this, strengthening our combined competitive positioning in the market. We are delighted that Laurent and his team have chosen to join us.”
F2C CEO Laurent Halbgewachs will now have a seat on fundinfo’s management board.
“We have worked successfully with fundinfo for many years and there is a close cultural fit between our two organisations. We are excited at the opportunity to extend the value chain of fundinfo’s existing services, and to provide Publifund to a wider range of clients as part of the fundinfo Group,” Halbgewachs said.
