This initiative was established by leading global fund distributors and fundinfo.


The openfunds initiative began in 2014. In January 2017, the openfunds association was founded by UBS AG, Credit Suisse AG, Bank Julius Bär & Co. AG, and fundinfo AG. The non-profit association’s goal is to establish a common industry standard for the characterisation of fund data.

The company bodies consists of the General Meeting, the Board of Directors and the Business Office
openfunds association’s structure


Fund providers and fund distributors who support and implement the openfunds standard can join the association either as an active member or as an informational member. Members are already or will soon be able to send or receive static fund data conforming to the openfunds standard. If your company needs to exchange static fund data, you are also welcome to use the openfunds fields and definitions without becoming a member of the association. Use of the standard is free and without any obligation.

Informational members receive information about openfunds, can submit suggestions for new fields or field changes and, if desired, their logo is published on our website.
An active member also has all the possibilities that an informational member has. The membership fee of the active membership is CHF 3000 p.a. and includes the following advantages:

Active Member

Access to advanced information on developments of the openfunds standard

Active participation in selected working groups

Possibility to submit proposals for improvements to the openfunds standard

Increase your company’s profile by publishing your company’s logo on

If you wish to join the association as an active or an informational member, you can do so by sending us a completed and signed application form.
The membership of active members is confirmed by the Board of Directors, the membership of informational members by the openfunds administrative office. We will be happy to publish your company name and logo on this page.
