Cooperation between fundinfo and UBS Fondcenter for Fund Data Management
UBS AG and its group company Fondcenter AG have commissioned fundinfo AG to procure and source fund data from fund providers and asset managers. In order to provide efficient, legally compliant investment advice, UBS Fondcenter's external and internal partners require on-demand access to complete, accurate and up-to-date fund information, including MiFID II and PRIIPs data. They also rely on the openfunds standard for fund data that was launched and is being continuously enhanced by UBS Fondcenter, Credit Suisse and Julius Bär.
"fundinfo has many years of experience in the procurement, validation and distribution of fund information and meets our high quality requirements", says Christophe Hefti, head UBS Fondcenter at UBS Asset Management. "By partnering with fundinfo, we can concentrate on our core competencies and expand our range of services, including data preparation. At the same time, we are providing fund providers with an experienced partner for high-quality fund data and document management."
“After working successfully with UBS Fondcenter for many years in the area of fund document management, we are pleased and proud that UBS Fondcenter has now placed their trust in fundinfo to perform their fund data management” says Jan Giller, Head of Sales & Marketing at fundinfo. "It is a privilege and a strong testament to our capabilities that the largest asset manager in Switzerland has chosen to work with fundinfo to procure their fund data".
Fund providers are requested to ensure that their static fund data is provided correctly and promptly to fundinfo according to the openfunds data standard (www.openfunds.org). The openfunds standard was initiated by the fund and banking industries. Currently the openfunds Association has 48 active and informational members.
