Nasdaq Fund Network

Increase Product Transparency with a Unique Symbol & NAV Distribution

This Solution Helps

  • Asset Managers
  • Financial Advisory Firms
  • Market Data Managers


The Nasdaq Fund Network (NFN) facilitates the collection and dissemination of performance, NAV, valuation, and strategy-level reference data for over 35,000 investable products to 100 million plus investors. Members of the service register their products on the network and receive a unique symbol. The service then disseminates the data, making it searchable on one of the largest distribution channels, which pipes into online brokerages and major market data vendors. Product issuers and asset managers benefit from an automated service that helps bring more awareness to and gather assets for new and existing products. Also, both institutional and retail investors, as well as the general investing public, benefit from daily access to transparent fund-level data for a wide range of products to help inform investment decisions.

NFN originally launched in 1984 under the brand ‘Mutual Fund Quotation Service’. For approximately 34 years, it has been instrumental in helping product issuers and new markets gain popularity with investors in a transparent manner. While the name has changed, our value has not. NFN delivers the same market-tested services to enhance discoverability, transparency and reach for investment products, helping asset managers and issuers grow assets.

Improving Transparency
(Eversheds Sutherland) concludes that there are sound arguments that may be advanced to establish that (i) supporting CITs on the NFN network and (ii) producing fact sheets, would not run afoul of the marketing restrictions noted.
