Review of 2020 – an unusual year
2020 was a challenging and unusual year for all of us. We experienced a global pandemic and had to learn to adapt to the new circumstances.
From the complete transition for the entire team to work remotely, to digital conferences, to numerous virtual meetings. We stayed home, missed our special personal interactions, but learned to preserve our unique team spirit.
Despite these challenges, we managed to make 2020 a strong year for AssetMetrix. We strengthened our team and hired a total of 19 new colleagues, so our workforce has now grown to 76 employees. Additionally, we had the support of 24 ambitious working students and interns.
In the past year, we have forged many new partnerships. We are delighted to have gained new customers who we are pleased to support in digitizing their middle and back office through our innovative services. We also became a signatory of UN PRI enhancing our commitment to help private capital in its ESG compliance, and joined the industry association France Invest, allowing for even closer relationships with our French customers, both existing and those soon-to-be.
We expanded our product range with the launch of fee validation services and ESG solutions for Limited Partners as well as General Partners, and reinforced our management with new leaders.
I would like to thank all our partners and clients for the trust they have placed in us and, of course, especially our team, which is doing a tremendous job even in these very challenging times!
I am looking optimistically to the new year and wish everyone a healthy and successful 2021.
