Currently, investment distribution information is fragmented and there is very little connectivity across the industry, meaning asset managers need to seek information from wherever they distribute funds.
The new solution enabled by FNZ and Clearstream via its Fund Centre capabilities will provide asset managers with the global and regional intelligence they require to analyse market trends, better understand behaviour, improve decision making around fund distribution, and ultimately deliver stronger business, customer and regulatory outcomes.
In addition to the business intelligence solution, FNZ and Clearstream will also support asset managers with their European fund distribution operations by delivering efficiency gains, enabled by Clearstream’s integrated, end-to-end fund dealing and custody solution, and FNZ’s wealth management platform. This service will provide asset managers with a ‘single source of truth’, aggregating data and insights to unify sales, product, risk, compliance and operational oversight functions under a single view.
Adrian Durham, CEO at FNZ Group, said:
”We are excited to collaborate with Clearstream and firmly believe that we have found a strong partner to support our growth strategy for the benefit of the UK & European asset management sector.”
”The partnership and our newly unveiled business intelligence solution will allow us to significantly enhance our support for asset managers by dramatically increasing transparency across the entire industry.”
Philippe Seyll, CEO at Clearstream Banking S.A. and Head of Investment Fund Services, added:
”We are thrilled to have FNZ as a strategic partner to our leading Clearstream Funds Services. With this partnership, we further grow our strong global network of fund execution and distribution partners via our Vestima and Fund Centre platforms.”
