The partnership will enable FE fundinfo’s clients to have direct access to one of the largest distribution channels for asset managers in Germany while growing the company’s capabilities in the region.

Dericon has developed a comprehensive distribution network for financial products used by over 150 leading banks and global investment houses in their advisory processes.

Its offering supports the entire fund management product lifecycle. It gives asset managers, issuers of structured products and distribution networks access to the most accurate and timely information – enabling growth and helping reduce costs as well as managing risks for the investment management community.

Liam Healy, Chief Executive Officer at FE fundinfo, said, “FE fundinfo is on a mission to further its position as a long-term strategic partner to the investment management community. The team at Dericon has built a solid business, and through our partnership we further bolster our commitment and capabilities in Germany by more clearly connecting investment product information to distributors such as banks and savings banks for our mutual and future clients. For Germany’s 50 million individual investors, this will provide the best access to the broadest range of investment opportunities through Dericon’s transparent and competitively differentiated solution powered by FE fundinfo.”

Andreas Krause, Founder and Managing Director at Dericon, said, “Dericon has built a reputation as a strong, innovative and reliable digitalisation partner for our clients and partners, and through serving them, we’ve built a deep understanding of the German distribution market. With FE fundinfo, we’re excited to grow our reach and bring our data and technical capabilities to the wider international financial industry. We plan to further build our innovative WMS platform into a fully featured German distribution hub that speeds access to market data and regulatory solutions, providing unrivalled value for clients.”
