Defaqto is the UK's most comprehensive database on financial services products.
At its core Defaqto is the UK’s largest retail financial product and fund database from which it creates a range of solutions and services – ratings, software tools, consultancy services, data services, and publications and events – to deliver this information in a meaningful way. Defaqto’s intelligence facilitates better financial decisions and greater effectiveness in the creation, management and distribution of financial products. Synova invested in Defaqto alongside the management team of Zahid Bilgrami, Alastair Brown and Remko Bijtjes, and Non-Executive Chairman Chris Samuel, in order to support the future growth of the Business.
The management team focused on increasing the breadth and depth of Defaqto’s extensive database whilst leveraging that information to expand the solutions it offers to the market. Recognised as a trusted provider of software and information to financial institutions, the public sector and independent financial advisers (IFAs), Defaqto also built a strong reputation as the leading independent provider of ratings for retail financial products and funds.
