FIN Datalink provides investment managers with automation to more than 50 third-party and consultant-maintained databases across the globe.
Asset managers scrambling to populate firm and product information into third-party and consultant-maintained databases each quarter now have an affordable, time-saving solution to efficiently and accurately submit their information with the launch of FIN Datalink.
FIN Datalink, a service of FIN News, provides an automated solution for data management and distribution to managers ranging from single product boutiques to global asset managers.
The service offers clients an independent solution free of other service requirements or affiliations with any third-party databases, ensuring managers the ability to connect directly to any database they choose.
“For too long managers have been forced to overpay for other database automation tools or pay for other services in order to access this type of service. That stops with FIN Datalink. Managers of all shapes and sizes now have access to an affordable, time-saving solution that allows them to focus on investing and providing institutional-quality client service,” FIN Managing Partner Matthew McCue said.
This established technology enables investment managers to seamlessly transfer raw investment data into FIN Datalink, with the software immediately organizing all qualitative and quantitative data across nine datasets, narratives included.
Once data has been transferred into FIN Datalink, the data team conducts two rounds of reconciliation as the data is automatically uploaded to the manager’s industry databases of choice such as eVestment, Investment Metrics, Morningstar, Callan and Mercer, among many others.
“This is not untested technology. We are able to immediately bring to market a tried and tested technology that we know investment managers want at a price we know they need,” McCue said. “There is finally another option for managers frustrated with either paying too much or not being able to afford this vital service.”
FIN News’ experience in offering content and services to investment managers ranging from start-ups to emerging managers to large, established firms translates well to FIN Datalink as the service does not discriminate based on size. For emerging managers in particular, the service will present an opportunity to leverage technology that has often been out of their price range.
