eShare has had the pleasure of not only being nominated for but winning some fantastic awards in the past, and this year is no different. We’re delighted to say we have been nominated for the Investment Week Funds Services Best Technology Solution Award for 2017. These awards are designed to celebrate companies that offer innovative services and solutions to those involved in the fund management industry, so to appear on such a list is fantastic recognition.
The funds sector is one that eShare knows well. We have a rich history working with fund managers all over Europe and feel that our technology is particularly suited to the needs of those working in the industry. To be nominated for this award, which we won back in 2015, really reflects the work we do within the Funds Industry and is lovely to see that we really do make a difference and help our clients.
In 2015, we were overwhelmed by the comments of Gianmarco Cremonesi, one of the judges at the time who said “eShare’s BoardPacks catered particularly well for the growing requirement to provide improved security and a transparent audit trail to board members. BoardPacks deserves credit for providing a very sound solution to an under-appreciated part of the risk management and governance process, but one that is growing in importance.”
We believe that our online board portal BoardPacks is especially suited to the funds sector, and can play a major role in making the digital age work. With the new heavy compliance burden and the rise of Fintech solutions, we support our clients and try to reduce that burden, such as VP Fund Solutions which you can read about in a case study.
This year we exhibited at FundForum in Berlin, one of the biggest funds gathering in Europe. Which gave us a better insight of the problems Fund Managers are facing, new regulations, new technologies and how strong the industry is right now. We had many great conversations there, not only about our product BoardPacks but also EntitySquared, which almost took all the limelight as this is the first of its kind to be released. We’ve been continuing those conversations since, and it’s great to hear that another of our products will be a strong player in helping reduce the burden for Fund Managers.
We are delighted to be nominated for this award again and cannot wait to attend the awards in October at the Royal Garden Hotel. We hope to catch up with familiar faces, hear about more emerging trends and hopefully walk away with another prestigious award; keep your fingers crossed for us!
