Lannebo Fonder: GRC WATCH simplifies due diligence

By | Fund Companies

Why did Lannebo Fonder select GRC Watch for due diligence? Daniel Sundqvist, Head of Sales and Marketing at Lannebo Fonder shares his view:

“We are expanding globally and the number of distributors in different countries is growing. It’s a challenge to monitor all of them on a regular basis, and we realized we had to find a solution for that. Our distributors also started to intensify their due diligence on us around the time that MIFID II entered into force. This means that we are now monitoring each other, so we wanted to find a mutual platform where all of us can work together and perform due diligence in both directions.

An important factor behind our choice of GRC WATCH is that they are completely independent. All of our distributors can create a company profile on the platform with no conflicts of interest.  They can share it with us and other fund companies at the same time. We also liked the fact that GRC WATCH is based on many years of experience related to this type of due diligence, and that is has a great understanding of the fund industry.”

About Lannebo: Lannebo Fonder is a Swedish fund company founded in 2000 by Anders Lannebo together with a group of portfolio managers from fund companies owned by leading banks in the Nordics. Lannebo has approximately 70 billion SEK in AUM across 16 funds and is expanding its fund distribution globally. Lannebo is completely independent, offering active management in certain areas where it possesses unique expertise.  www.lannebofonder.se

Avanza: GRC WATCH helps us work smarter

By | Fund Distributors

Why did Avanza Bank select GRC Watch for due diligence? Linnea Wiklund, Product Specialist – Funds at Avanza Bank shares her view:

 “The most brilliant part of GRC WATCH is that it helps us work smarter. Now we can easily monitor the fund companies that we are obliged to check by law as a fund distributor. The fund companies can check us as well in the same environment. We simply connect to each other’s company profiles on the platform, where we can access a standardized set of facts, documents and contact persons. We also get access to reporting and risk analysis tools.

At Avanza we always strive to be early adopters of innovative solutions and to lead digital transformation in the fund industry. Joining the GRC WATCH network is leading to huge efficiency gains. Compared to sending questionnaires back and forth via email to our counterparties, this solution is so much better. It’s exactly the kind of development we want to be part of. The sooner everyone is part of the same network, the sooner we will all benefit!”
