WHAT IS ASSETQ?
Driven by the investment industry sigMacity’s AssetQ has quickly grown to be the UK’s largest repository of fund due diligence information for all domestic and international collectives.
AssetQ is the leading semi-automated solution for suitability checks on client investments saving significant operational overhead and improving levels of regulatory compliance.
AssetQ has the backing of the funds industry and opens up a flow of accurate, critical and key information from the fund provider to the fund buyer. This information is presented in a clear format enabling ease of comparative analysis.
No other solution offers such a complete spectrum of information.
What AssetQ does
AssetQ gathers qualitative information from fund providers using a proven questionnaire devised by the wealth and asset management industry – providing the answers you need to know, presented in a single location in a consistent, comparable format.
AssetQ avoids the need to gather subjective textual documents from the fund provider. The AssetQ questionnaire does not seek opinion from the fund provider, simply concentrating on factual data.
