The FundsXML organisation wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
As we look back upon the past year, we want to acknowledge those who helped us shape our organization. A lot has been achieved in this respect. For example, the increasingly complex regulatory reporting obligations for Asset Managers were taken into account when the FundsXML versions 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 were revised in 2022.
In this regard, for example, new data fields relating to the European ESG Template (EET) and the European PRIIPs Template (EPT), which have been harmonized at the European level by FinDatEx, were being integrated into the current schema.
The European data strategy aims to make the EU a leader in a data-driven society.
In addition to that, the publication of the legislative proposal regarding the European Single Access Point (ESAP) made it clear that data-driven processes are on the rise in the entire EU capital market. Specifically, the ESAP data platform aims to record financial and sustainability data on companies and investment products in a standardized machine-readable form.
FundsXML users are already very well familiar with the processes of machine-readable data transmission. Against this backdrop, the standardized and machine-readable FundsXML format has once more proved to be well-timed.
Last but not least, by providing the asset management industry and other users with free documentation materials, video tutorials, and webinars, the FundsXML organization further supported the transfer of high-quality information.
We look forward to continuing our joint success in the years to come.
