Wells Fargo Asset Management Luxembourg Expands License in Luxembourg to Support the European Market
Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) announced today that the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), the financial regulator of Luxembourg, has granted a non-objection to the expansion of Wells Fargo Asset Management Luxembourg’s (WFAML’s) existing license.
The expansion of WFAML’s license in Luxembourg will permit the provision of discretionary portfolio management and investment advisory services to Wells Fargo Asset Management’s (WFAM’s) European institutional investors. As part of WFAM’s efforts to support its European Union client base, WFAML will broaden its presence with branches in Frankfurt and Paris.
“By strengthening the capabilities of WFAM in Luxembourg, along with dedicated WFAM branches in Frankfurt and Paris, we are well positioned to deepen relationships with our European client base, as well as with investors based in other international markets,” said Deirdre Flood, head of International Distribution for WFAM. “With the prevailing uncertainty around Brexit, this small but meaningful change to our current structure will ensure continued service for all of our existing European Union clients and will facilitate the future development of WFAM in this key market.”
Through its existing presence in London, WFAM will continue to serve its U.K. and international clients. WFAM’s London-based portfolio management teams—WFAM Credit Europe and WFAM Global Fixed Income—will continue to maintain operations from WFAM’s London offices.
Luxembourg is a leading asset and fund management hub within Europe. Since 2015, WFAML has served as the management company for WFAM’s Luxembourg-domiciled UCITS, which launched in 2008.
Wells Fargo is committed to providing a smooth stakeholder experience for all those affected by Brexit. Today’s announcement, along with the company’s Brexit approach for its securities business, forms part of Wells Fargo’s Brexit strategy. This strategy is predicated on supporting the needs of its team members and customers—ranging from retirement plans, insurance companies, financial institutions, and other institutional investors—in a post-Brexit environment.

Knopp Biosciences Expands Research Collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s to Characterize Effect of Dexpramipexole in Inflammatory Diseases16.1.2019 14:00 | Tiedote
Knopp Biosciences LLC, a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for inflammatory and neurological diseases with a high unmet need, today announced the expansion of its research collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to further elucidate the eosinophil-depleting mechanism of action of Knopp’s lead investigational drug, dexpramipexole.

NexPlayer Supporting Low Latency HLS & DASH Streaming on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs16.1.2019 12:52 | Tiedote
As part of their mission to provide the most advanced feature set, NexPlayer has added low latency functionality to its media players. NexPlayer allows you to enable low latency streaming with HLS and DASH on all devices, solving the latency problem and improving the OTT viewing experience. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190116005301/en/ Latency is a serious issue for streaming services, as live playback with HLS and DASH typically falls 30 seconds to a minute behind the live event. With linear TV only 6 seconds behind, OTT viewers find out what happens via social media or text before seeing it firsthand. Now with the support of NexPlayer, media organizations can achieve sub-6 second latency on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs. In the past, the only ways to achieve low latency were through proprietary end-to-end protocols or by foregoing ABR support. Both methods have considerable drawbacks. Propr
