FundsTech launches as the leading dedicated technology magazine for the European fund management industry

Funds Europe, the business strategy magazine for Europe’s asset management professionals, has launched FundsTech – a new online magazine and events business focused on technology solutions for the fast evolving European funds technology industry, reflecting the growing interest in this sector.

FundsTech gives readers a complete 360-degree end to end view of the market, covering everything from strategy, digital innovation, research, news, trends, thought leadership, to commentary and regulatory issues.

Aimed at asset managers, pension funds, insurance companies, wealth managers, fund managers, and providers of asset services, including custodians of funds, lawyers, and brokers, FundsTech was created in response to growing demand for detailed analysis and thought leadership on the technologies now transforming the world of asset management.

FundsTech will be first with new technology research. For example, to mark its launch, it has published a new research report, ‘Future of Distribution’ from Funds Europe and technology provider Calastone, which highlights how cryptocurrencies are increasingly impacting asset management.

90% of the 96 fund management professionals surveyed indicated cryptocurrencies would form a larger part of their product ranges in the future – up from 9% now. The survey also highlighted that ‘digital’ will be the main factor affecting distribution in the coming years and 85% said ‘technology platforms’ will be a distribution channel they will target.

Nick Fitzpatrick, Group Editor of Funds Europe and FundsTech says, “The adoption of technology in the fund management industry was almost ‘glacial’ in the past. However, in the past two years there’s been an explosion of technology solutions that are reshaping the fund management industry. It’s an evolving and dynamic growth area, which is why we launched FundsTech.”

David Wright, Co-Publisher and Business Development Director, Funds Europe and FundsTech said, “FundsTech is dedicated to this exciting space, bringing all the latest insights, trends and overviews of the industry together in one place. We aim to help our readers understand which technologies can improve how they work, lower their costs, so they can make the best decisions for their business and improve their investment outcomes.”

Along with interviews and profiles, roundtable, and panel discussions – FundsTech includes 20 different channels covering key subjects such as Digital Assets, Cryptocurrency, Tokenisation, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain/DLT, Robo-Advisors and Open Finance.

FundsTech also runs sponsored events and roundtables and offers profile opportunities. Its current sponsors are Oracle, Calastone, Metrosoft, Amundi Technology and Milestone but they are keen to hear from other companies interested in sponsorship.
