Sionic has extensive experience helping leading asset managers, pension funds, insurers and service providers to transform their operating model, technology enablers and strategy. Funds Europe covers all areas of asset management: institutional and retail markets, traditional and alternative investments, front and back office administration. The FundTech Awards recognise excellence, professionalism and creativity within the European fund technology arena.


Sionic Partner Jonathan Hammond specialises in asset management technology and leads Sionic’s involvement in these new industry awards. He comments:

These new awards are about showcasing and celebrating innovation, contribution and value.  At Sionic, we work closely with a wide range of international clients and we believe it’s essential to recognise the people and achievements both in leadership and behind the scenes: the vendor improvements, implementations, and best in class software that are fundamental to a resilient, innovative sector.  We’re delighted to be partnering with Funds Europe as a respected industry leader to do that. I’m even looking forward to the challenging task of judging the entries. Good luck to all competitors!”


Alan Chalmers, the Publisher of Funds Europe adds:

“We see more and more emphasis on technology in the funds industry. It has clearly moved to centre stage particularly in recent months. With FundTech we have tried to recognise this move over the last three years and this is the next step to split of technology from the Funds Europe awards and give the whole area increased emphasis, looking at best of breed, successful outcomes, innovation and recognising key people driving the industry”
