FE fundinfo relaunches fund news channel with UBS

Global fund data and technology company FE fundinfo has relaunched its fund news channel with UBS Global Wealth Management to provide investors with up-to-date news and analysis from the fund managers.

The service, known as News Dissemination, allows fund managers to provide their unique insights on the impact of recent market or political events, which is information not typically found in existing content such as fund factsheets. As part of the updated service which got a new look & feel, fund managers will also be able to complement their stories with a new image function and enhanced look & feel.
 
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 into other distributors’ tools.
 
The easy-to-manage service allows fund managers full editorial control, with the ability to create, edit and share their news via a web-based content management system.
 
Philippe G Müller, Head CIO Global IM Fund Investment Solutions at UBS Global Wealth Management, says: “UBS is proud that the way our clients and client advisors receive timely and relevant insights into their funds is constantly improved to ensure an even more engaging and relevant experience.”
 
Philipp Portmann, Head of Business Development and Strategy at FE fundinfo, says: “At a time when clear, accurate and timely information can be hard to come by, our News Dissemination service will provide a valuable way for fund managers to demonstrate and share their expertise within the industry. While there exists a huge amount of fund information available to investors, it can be difficult to cut through the noise and find analysis and data which is useful. News Dissemination will allow fund managers to connect with the wider market place and end investors through their distribution partners such as UBS.”
 
News Dissemination is part of FE fundinfo's Data Dissemination Service, which enables fund managers to deliver fund data to their distribution partners as well as end investors in an efficient and targeted manner.
