Cutting-edge tools for the investment industry
Preqin are one of the world’s largest business data and intelligence providers for Hedge Funds, Investors, Fund Managers and Private Capital institutions. They provide a number of products to these institutions, I helped Preqin shape and define their brand new flagship fintech product ‘PreqinPro’, ensuring investors and fund managers now have better and more advanced cutting-edge tools that they need to analyse data and make decisions quickly in an area where a lot of data exists. Successfully launching the flagship PreqinPro platform in June 2018, I worked as a UX contractor alongside a close team of fintech specialists, workshopping and wire-framing functional and business requirements, creating high and low-fidelity prototypes and intelligence tools for the investment industry based on research and user testing amongst subscribers. As this was a replatforming project we needed to understand closely what the new system could handle and provide and simplify user journeys and workflows, as well as defining the UX for all subscriber levels, working closely with stakeholders. User Testing high-fidelity prototypes threw up a number of insights including the necessity for a ‘light theme’.
