Goal-directed thinking within a team of specialists
In the late 1990s, the Internet had not yet become the mass medium it is today. Information on investment funds was hard to find, and often of poor quality. In 1998, Frederik Garnies and Torsten Iben founded the company Financial Webworks GmbH, for the purpose of researching, processing and electronically distributing investment fund data. The market was clearly lacking such information in those days. Investment funds were already widespread at that time, but investors could obtain product and market information only by inquiring directly of the parent banks of the investment fund companies, for the most part. Financial Webworks set out to fill this unserved need.
Today, we are known by the short, memorable name FWW. But our philosophy and vision are the same. We help investment fund advisors and investors make their investment decisions by providing them with transparent, up-to-date and correct fund information. Over time, we have developed numerous applications from our databases, which are now in high demand, primarily among professional users such as banks and investment fund platforms, asset managers, operators of financial portals, vendors of financial products and broker pools.
