The information provided by ExpansiÃ³n comprises pricing and fundamental data for all funds licensed in Spain and Portugal across all funds classes, and includes fundamental data, daily prices and history. Based on this information, Interactive Data calculates and maintains, for and on behalf of ExpansiÃ³n, the âExpansiÃ³n Rankingâ, a star ranking launched by the newspaper in January 2008. An annual awards event recognises the leading Spanish investment companies for their performance over the past year and is an important occasion for the Spanish funds industry.
Interactive Data will also enhance ExpansiÃ³nâs web porta, to provide extensive funds data â similar to the newspaper offering â as well as fact sheets, search and comparison functionalities using Interactive Dataâs Funds Suite solution, a service that provides flexible tools for customised web offerings.
