Christopher StapletonManaging Partner, Co-Founder
For several years I worked directly with Abbey and Factbook in the reporting and fact sheet creation and delivery for Skandia Global Funds plc. Abbey and his team were always client focused, highly responsive and committed to delivering timely, high quality reporting which was critical for our customers and distribution partners. As my career shifted to be focused solely on external distribution, initially at Old Mutual and separately with my own firm, my own team and I continued to benefit from Factbook’s continued client reporting delivery to Merian Global Investors (previously Old Mutual Global Investors). I can enthusiastically endorse Abbey and the team at Factbook to any sized asset management firm seeking bespoke, globally scalable reporting solutions and automation to their marketing platforms.
Justin Wheatley Ex CEO, Author
I have had the pleasure of knowing Abbey since the 1980s when we both worked at Micropal, a London-based mutual fund analysis business. He has a depth of experience and domain knowledge of the intricate workings of middle office processes that has rarely been equalled, in my experience. He is both technically brilliant and extremely personable. Abbey has built a strong offering and team at Factbook and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Robert CorballyManaging Director, European Product
Having been a sometime client of Factbook, I have no hesitation in recommending Abbey’s client centric approach to providing well founded and effective solutions for asset management businesses.
John GellettManaging Director, Group Chair
Factbook is the SAAS manifestation of Abbey as a person, whom I’ve known and worked with for over 10 years. Factbook’s Marketing and Analytics Reporting Service to the Investment Management Industry is totally authentic, demonstrating a deep and thorough understanding of its clients’ requirements. It’s also adaptable, totally dependable and the best, therefore Abbey as a contact and Factbook as a service are both a privilege to support and recommend unreservedly.
Brian MorganCAIA Director of Risk and Analytics
Factbook stands out as being extremely client-focused, nimble and flexible. Our team utilized the Factbook platform to assist with automating a complex multi-language factsheet monthly reporting cycle. The Factbook team were true partners focusing on delivering to our needs rather than pushing us towards an easier out of the box option.
Jean-Bernard LE FLOC’HCFA Partner
I have known Abbey for many years and have always found him to be both knowledgeable and extremely enjoyable to work with. His understanding of the investment management industry is of the highest calibre. In addition, Factbook has a great team of experts with a total focus on the client’s perspective; so much so that Fastnet Translation has a partnership with Factbook. I would not hesitate to recommend Abbey and Factbook’s reporting services to any client-centred investment management firm.
Gokhan SaruhanPortfolio Manager, Head of International Equities
In Factbook he has assembled a unique product and a highly skilled team. I would not hesitate to recommend Abbey and Factbook to anyone looking for a turnkey investment reporting solution.
Noel FordIndependent Director, Principal, Programme Director
I worked with Factbook from 2002 to 2013 to develop a data management and custom reporting facility within the Skandia and Old Mutual Plc groups. I always found the client focus and quality of response to be fantastic. I also welcomed the open and innovative approach to considering new reporting challenges which were often driven by regulatory changes or custom client reporting needs across a global business network. I would have no reservation in recommending Abbey and the team at Factbook.
David SellorsCFA FSIP Head of Performance & Client Reporting
I have worked with Abbey and his team at Factbook for many years, most notably at Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) where I led the Performance & Client Reporting team. It was due to Factbook’s great work that OMGI won the Citywire Selector service award in 2018 for the ‘Best fund factsheet’ provider. We recognised the benefits that Factbook provided, automating our fund factsheet production and delivering the scalability required to serve our growing international customer base. The efficiencies and capacity improvements were instant, allowing our marketing teams to focus on adding greater value to our proposition. Since being acquired, the excellent relationship with Factbook now continues at Jupiter Asset Management.
Anthony HowlandEx UK COO, Company Director
I’ve known Abbey for well over 20 years and I can thoroughly recommend him and the team at Factbook. There can be few professionals in the investment management world that are as knowledgeable about fund reporting as Abbey. He has established a strong team at Factbook and has signed a string of blue-chip firms over the years. Abbey is also a very convivial character, possessing strong interpersonal skills and adopting a consultative approach.
