Why did UOB Asset Management turn to Finimize? 

UOB Asset Management and Finimize share a joint mission of empowering retail investors. Thio Boon Kiat, the CEO of UOB Asset Management, reached out to us after becoming a Finimize Premium user. He'd noticed one of our Valentine's promotions for the app (forgive us for sharing this, Thio) and loved Finimize's bite-sized content and fresh tone of voice. He was keen to explore how UOB Asset Management could partner with Finimize to offer its customers the most impactful financial education experience possible and help them to become better investors. 

How does the Finimize News API integration work?

Finimize Daily News and Weekly Briefs are delivered through a brilliant UOB Asset Management Invest app interface. The UOB Asset Management customers can access content, read, or listen to news stories and execute investments on the same platform. The content is available in text and audio format, fully automated via our Finimize Content API. All image and audio assets are served via global content delivery networks to ensure fast access for users throughout the world. UOB Asset Management amplifies the content's reach with push notifications, giving readers a 2-line news story summary to spark their interest.
