Ume solutions, a Luxembourg-based fund distribution due diligence platform, has been awarded the prestigious 2023 Nicsa Nova award for innovation in distribution. The award, presented by Nicsa, a major asset and wealth management industry association, recognises outstanding innovation and leadership.
The Ume platform, operating in over 90 countries, facilitates the exchange of due diligence information between hundreds of fund providers and thousands of distributors.
