Square Mile partnered with FE fundinfo to launch the Fund Dashboard; an easy-to-interpret overview of core fund information designed to help assess a fund's ability to meet client's investment objectives. Combining Square Mile's qualitative fund research with FE fundinfo's quantitative analysis, the Fund Dashboard aims to deliver a significant amount of fund data in a simple and intuitive format.

The Fund Dashboard provides an interactive interface offering a snapshot of five key fund elements that are considered when selecting investments. Behind each of the five elements is a deeper analysis and insight that can support informed decisions
