Alfi launches new information platform for retail investors

RELATED TOPICS​

Alfi has launched its new “Information Platform”, which is available on the Alfi Investor Centre – http://www.alfi.lu/investor-centre. The Information Platform is aimed at retail investors who may have little knowledge or experience in investment funds, and gathers together useful information and links to websites in different countries that deal with various aspects of investing in investment funds.

The launch was announced at Alfi’s annual Spring Conference, which took place in Luxembourg on 15 and 16 March.

The Information Platform was devised by the Alfi Investment Forum, formed as a result of the financial crisis in 2008 when many retail investors were surprised by the level of risk inherent in their funds. Alfi’s Board of Directors brought together a panel of experts to look at retail investors’ needs and expectations, focusing on retail investors who have little or no knowledge of investment funds.  In 2010 the Forum launched the Alfi Investor Centre, which aimed at providing investors with easy-to-understand information about the world of funds and fund investments.

“Luxembourg is a leading European fund centre and its funds are distributed cross-border to investors around Europe and to those in many other countries,” says Rudolf  Kessel, Chairman of the Alfi Investor Forum. “We believe it is important, therefore, to take a lead on providing information and education to investors, to help re-establish trust in our industry.”  

The new Information Platform gathers together useful information and links to websites in different countries that deal with various aspects of investing in funds. The first roll-out covers: Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.  Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands will follow, and more countries will be available in due course.
