GLOBAL - Standard and Poor's Fund Services has launched the FEFSI European Dashboard - a funds industry data website for European consumers and investment professionals.
Commissioned by the Fédération Européenne des Fonds et Sociétés d'Investissement (FEFSI) - the pan-European umbrella organisation of the investment funds industry of the 15 member states of the EU, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Poland and Switzerland - the European Dashboard provides a comprehensive overview of the volume, structure and performance of fund investments in 14 European nations.
Part of the FEFSI website – www.fefsi.org – the European Dashboard allows consumers to explore the performance and volatility of fund markets both by geographic investment area and by investment category.
Standard and Poor's fund services’ director, Continental Europe, Romain Muller, said: To meet FEFSI’s need for better access to information on the European fund industry, Standard & Poor’s Fund Services is delighted to have developed the European Funds Dashboard.
This innovative presentation of funds data information can only be found on the FEFSI site. Standard & Poor's is the market leader in providing ratings and analysis on managed funds worldwide and our decision to support FEFSI in this field is important, recognising their key role in coordinating the fast growing European funds market.
