As part of growth plans, FundsLibrary moves into new offices in both Bristol and London
FundsLibrary, one of the UK investment industry’s leading providers of fund data, related regulatory services and software solutions, appointed a CEO, Arun Sarwal, in December 2016. Since his appointment the business has embarked on a strategic path to scale the business.
The data management and fintech company has plans to grow the business significantly over the next three years, and as part of that the company established an office in Token House Yard in the City of London and now new premises at St Catherine’s Court in the heart of Bristol.
The new offices will enable the company to accommodate growth to support plans for innovation, building upon the core strengths of the business, and have a base close to its large number of London based clients.
The FundsLibrary hub in Bristol has been themed to resonate the company’s five key values: Successful Client Collaboration; Taking a Stance for Quality; Inspired Team-Working; Demonstrating our Expertise and Having a Winning Attitude. The space, which is in the company’s contemporary brand colours, incorporates break out areas that are equipped to nurture agile, cross-functional working, including collaboration with business partners and clients.
Arun Sarwal, CEO of FundsLibrary, commented:
“We are extremely proud of our journey so far. We started providing data to support investment platforms over a decade ago. Today we are managing all data points for mutual fund products marketed by some 600 global fund groups. We also support the fund data needs for 14 of the top investment platforms. In addition, 12 out of the top 30 European fund managers use our Solvency II Manager services.
“Our vision for the coming year is to broaden our range of services to the investment industry in support of regulation and innovation to optimise the use of digital and other exciting emerging technologies. In addition to our offices, we are also making further investment in our infrastructure and business capability with select key hires to be announced shortly.
“As a company we believe that whilst winning is not everything, wanting to win in collaboration with our clients is.”
