FundsData™ provides data clients with a one-stop data solution for collective investment schemes, and the Profile research team endeavour to capture and store every piece of relevant information for every fund and every management company.
FundsData™ is a fully relational database structure designed to facilitate manipulation of the data content. Descriptive content is, wherever possible, backed by field-defined data, allowing filtering, searches, date calculations and complex reporting.
The data covers all ASISA-registered retail funds in South Africa. Where necessary we also research and maintain data for non-retail (institutional funds/classes) on a case-by-case basis when requested to do so by a client.
Through an international partner we are also able to offer data on the FSB-registered Offshore funds. The data is fairly comprehensive, but not to the same level as the data for the South African ASISA-registered funds, mentioned above.
