The UK’s Department for International Trade hosted its second ‘Fintech Trade Mission’ to Tokyo, Japan between the 16th to the 20th of January 2017. Edgefolio was one of 14 UK companies selected for the trip, which aims to help UK firms showcase their products & services to the Japanese market.

The DIT’s Fintech Trade Mission aims to promote the UK’s Fintech sector, boost business opportunities and attract investment. It gives local institutions and investors a chance to meet with firms that are developing technologies in the FinTech space including those active in the asset management, banking and insurance spaces. Japan has one of the largest financial markets in the world. FinTech has been booming since last year and has continuously drawn a great deal of attention.

Edgefolio equips investors with the tools to discover and analyse thousands of hedge fund managers, whilst giving hedge fund managers tools to maintain scalable investor relations in an era of increasing regulations. Additionally, Edgefolio works in partnership with prominent prime brokerage teams, who leverage the cutting-edge technology to streamline the fundraising process for their clients.
