A “first” for Asia – a new platform consolidating financial intelligence

Sept. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- As a new initiative for the Asia region, Asia First Financial Intelligence Ltd (“Asia First”) has built a unique web-based research and distribution platform that consolidates the most important sources of intelligence for the financial services industry. The platform does, for the first time, bring together in one place the publications, events, research & data interactive, news and training that is critical to professionals in the industry and provide tools for users to source, purchase and manage this intelligence in an efficient way. The platform has already had success with key news and information publishers such as Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Wall Street Journal and Euromony Institutional investor who have listed products onto the platform.

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.” Financial services corporations and individuals get bombarded with information, including by email, telephone call mailings and so on. By making all this financial intelligence accessible through a single platform, it will save users of the service time and money. They can review, compare, purchase and manage, all on one web-based platform.

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

Professional organizations

·         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”. It will also enable providers of news, research and intelligence to tap broader markets.

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.
