A “first” for Asia – a new platform consolidating financial intelligence
Jonathan Watkin, Chairman, a long standing industry participant commented that; “with so many sources of information focused on our industry including publications, events, research, interactive, news and training, we set out with the objective of building a platform that simplifies for professional users the process of sourcing and managing relevant financial intelligence.”
Asia First… provides transparency on what’s available, what’s on and what’s of value in Asia and beyond. It is:
· Comprehensive, covering most major sectors within the financial services industry
· Asia-focused, ensuring it delivers content relevant to professionals in the region and those elsewhere with an interest in Asia
· Delivered through the web and in the cloud to serve professionals and organisations wherever they are based
· Targeted at the community of financial services businesses and professionals, asset owners and
· Free to users including corporate users and institutions.
Amongst the tools Asia First provides to users are the ‘Smart Events Calendar’ where users can view all of the most important financial events across Asia filtered by industry sector, topic, or location; and the ‘Smart Research’ database that enables users to explore industry leading research papers from academics, consultants, associations, asset managers and service providers.
William Lowndes, CEO of Asia First and who has had many years senior management experience in the fund management industry commented that; “we have spent a lot of time talking with users to develop both a front-end that is informative and provides a comprehensive view of available intelligence product but also a back-end that removes the hard work for users in managing these products and subscriptions individually or across large and complex orgainsations”
No other platform has the coverage and range of intelligence products of Asia First. And no other platform has the commitment to first and foremost to serve the needs of the professional users of financial intelligence.
