ZURICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To provide investors with up-to-date information and views from the fund managers with which they are invested fundinfo has launched a new service, in cooperation with UBS Global Wealth Management, that enables fund providers to publish fund-specific news in an automated and systematic way.
The new service, known as News Dissemination, allows fund managers to provide their insights on the impact of recent market or political event – information not typically available in most fund documents. It is fully integrated into UBS's client-facing applications such as UBS eBanking, UBS Quotes, and Wealth Management Online (WMO). The service can also be integrated by other distributors.
The easy-to-manage service, allows fund managers to create, edit and archive their news via a web-based fundinfo content management system, giving them complete control at all times.
"This is a game changer. It's the first time fund providers have the opportunity to deliver ad-hoc and near real-time insights on their funds in an automated and structured fashion to all our client advisors and also to our clients," said Bryan Crawford, Managing Director and Global Head of Investment Funds & Alternatives Distribution at UBS Global Wealth Management.
"We are delighted that with News Dissemination we can offer a valuable new service to asset managers and distributors that will lead to increased efficiency and allow them to broaden their reach. We hope this sets a new standard for how after-sales for funds is conducted," said Philipp Portmann, CEO at fundinfo.
News Dissemination is part of fundinfo's Data Dissemination Service, which enables fund providers to easily deliver fund data to their distribution partners and investors.
