It will bring together all of FE’s, fundinfo’s and F2C’s many years of investment expertise, technology, software and services into a combined and holistic fund data and technology provider.

With roots stretching back to 1996, FE fundinfo has offices in the UK, Switzerland, Luxembourg, India, Czech Republic, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain, France and Italy.

Having worked on integrating FE, fundinfo and F2C over the past year, the company will now focus on further developing and upscaling its market-leading products and services, through its unique fundinfo.cloud information marketplace. With an ambition to become the largest information marketplace in the world for investment funds, information published on fundinfo.cloud will be used by fund distributors, fund managers and financial advisers to research and select funds, with the very latest and most accurate data.

Peter Little, Chairman of FE fundinfo, said: “It is an exciting time in the global investment industry. Like many others, it is undergoing some rapid and fundamental changes which present both opportunities and challenges for those working within it. As such, there is an intrinsic need for forward-thinking and innovative organisations to service the industry’s stakeholders and to help them navigate between the challenges and opportunities.
