Another day, another deal involving global financial technology player Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. Broadridge has just reported from Lake Success, New York, that it has further expanded its global market intelligence business with the acquisition of MackayWilliams, a specialist European fund market and research firm.

It says the acquisition will combine its fund data and analytics solutions with MackayWilliams' leading insight into European mutual fund trends, brand perceptions and fund selector behaviour offering clients a more integrated and holistic view of retail and institutional markets across regions.

Combined with Broadridge's "Global Market Intelligence" analytics platform, which analyzes over 82,000 mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) globally, clients will now be able to access a fully integrated fund distribution intelligence solution, revealing what Broadridge describes as unrivalled insights of the European and cross-border fund market.
