Liontrust has selected Fundipedia’s data management platform to deliver a golden source, providing validated, trustworthy data to both Liontrust and its downstream data vendors.
This followed the recognition by Liontrust that gaining more effective control and management of its product data was a critical step on the path to supporting its future growth and empowering the entire organisation. Fundipedia’s audit trail and reconciliation features evidence that data delivered downstream are accurately published to investors.
The project was delivered by Fundipedia’s implementation team who bring decades of asset management experience and a deep knowledge of the challenges faced by asset managers. This combination of experience and cutting-edge technology efficiently onboarded Liontrust’s data in less than 12 weeks.

- Compliance on autopilot. Fundipedia’s automated data quality rules, vendor dissemination and reconciliation checks guarantee data accuracy in situ thus ensuring that when it is disseminated to vendors it is accurately published.
- Positioned for future growth. With a golden data source, Liontrust has the foundation and technology to launch new products and scale up operations with future growth of the business.
Simon Swords, Managing Director of Fundipedia said “with every aspect of investment management under scrutiny, firms can no longer afford to take an ad hoc approach to managing and delivering the data that is the very lifeblood of their business. We’re delighted to be working with a firm as forward thinking as Liontrust.
Liontrust now has control over its data, mitigating potential business, reputational and compliance risk. A foundation of accurate data will drive growth and put Liontrust ahead of its competitors for years to come.”
