Swiss fintech launches first-ever mobile app for alternative investments

Monday, August 28, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Fundbase has announced immediate availability of Fundbase Mobile, a revolutionary application for qualified investors to source alternative investment products. With Fundbase Mobile, investors will have access to a globally diversified universe of high quality alpha producing alternative investments at their fingertips.

Alternative investing is evolving from traditional hedge fund strategies and investors are searching for broad market outperformance through diversification and reduced correlation. Fundbase Mobile emphasizes efficiencies mobile platforms provide, quickly allowing users to view relevant high-level fund data and decide to include a fund for further due diligence or pass all together by simple screen swipes. Users stay connected, while on-the-go.

Fundbase Mobile is an innovative product, designed to allow qualified investors to identify top manager talent anywhere. The more investors interact with the application, the more personalized suggested alternative funds become, learning from user approvals and passes. Fundbase Mobile is available in both the Apple App store and Google Play.

"It's a unique tool allowing investors to source the best funds from an intelligently and systematically selected universe, based on an active and engaged community of qualified investors and a global universe of alternative managers," said Pascal Rode, CEO at Fundbase. "The mobile experience allows users to easily browse through interesting funds everywhere and anytime, something that was not available."

The majority of Fundbase users expect to improve their fund sourcing process with Fundbase Mobile by spending more time logged in, searching funds. Pancho Vanhees, of TFAL Investments, a Luxembourg-based investor, believes the mobile app will improve their systematic processes and quickly identify top performing emerging hedge fund managers while on-the-go.

"Having mobile access to the most important fund statistics in one easy to read place didn't exist before this." said Mr. Vanhees in an interview. "With Fundbase Mobile, I'm sourcing our next best investment, even when I'm not in front of a computer. Fundbase serves me a daily dose of outstanding managers like personal social media does for private matters. It's an excellent resource, like a mobile research assistant."
