AQUMON Bags ICBC Asia as Its First Banking Client for the Launch of Its SmartFund

by February 16, 2021

Robo-advisor AQUMON has launched an algorithm-driven fund selector platform, SmartFund, which was first adopted by Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Asia) Limited (ICBC Asia) in Hong Kong and made available in late 2020.

SmartFund is a new generation big data analytics platform developed by AQUMON that utilises multi-factor algorithms-driven analysis to provide quality fund recommendations.

While the mutual fund market is surrounded by options and asymmetric information, SmartFund is able to resolve a series of fund distribution or sales problems.

SmartFund can also display historical data and provide forward-looking fund rankings in its clean and simple interface after multi-dimensional analyses of over 500 factors.

AQUMON said that investment consultants can access abundant and timely information to recommend high-potential mutual fund products.

Moreover, SmartFund is a SaaS-based platform which allows institutions to launch and update rapidly without developing their own applications or infrastructure.
