FINANCIAL EXPRESS THE FIRST UK DATA PROVIDER TO RECEIVE ISO ACCREDITATION

12 April 2007

Financial Express, the leader in fund selection, has become the first fund data provider in the UK to be awarded ISO Certification.

BS EN ISO 9001:2000 has been awarded for quality management systems, while ISO/IEC 27001:2005 ensures that Financial Express employs a best practice approach to quality in all aspects of business processes within the scope of the Certificate. That is, the collection, validation and distribution of funds, equities, indices and currencies information.

As quality ‘kite marks’, the ISO Certificates* have been awarded to cover all global fund data collection and processing activities for the Financial Express group. [*A full explanation is attached.]

Financial Express, best known for Trustnet.com, Analytics, and its market-leading web based tools and applications for institutions, is the largest third party data provider in the UK and supplies a cross section of financial services; data vendors (Thomson Financial, Reuters, Bloomberg and Telekurs), wrap platforms and fund supermarkets, financial advisers, software houses, fund management companies, the financial press and financial portals.

Paul Wynne, Financial Express head of marketing and communication, says:
“What separates data providers in the current climate is quality, and Financial Express customers can now be officially assured that we offer them the best possible data and products. All our products, including our websites, web based research tools and software applications, are derived from and supported by our core strength - the collection and validation of fund data. The ISO Certificates are a guarantee to our customers that we are committed to excellence in every facet of our business.”
