Washington, D.C.– January 13, 2020 – Today, leading asset management trade association NICSA is announcing it is rebranding to “Nicsa” and is upgrading its technology tools to better serve its members. The enhancements bring a fresh new look and improved engagement functionality as it further expands its presence in the global asset management space.
“We are very proud and excited to introduce our Nicsa 2020 rebrand and upgrades. We believe these vital changes will help convey the breadth of content and opportunities we offer as well as provide an improved member experience,” said Jim Fitzpatick, President and CEO of Nicsa. “We hope the new Nicsa will invigorate our members in this new year and beyond, as we further our mission to connect all areas of the global asset management industry.”
Nicsa’s refreshed brand emphasizes connectivity and community within the global asset management industry. The brand encompasses Nicsa initiatives such as the Diversity Project North America and Blackwell Scholarship programs, and underscores the association’s modernization and expansion into cutting-edge business areas such as technology, distribution, and product innovation.
Nicsa’s platform improvements focus on three main components: a redesigned website, a new community portal, and a new learning management system. The website, nicsa.org, features streamlined navigation, enhanced functionality, and new analytics tools. Via the website, users can access Nicsa Hub, a community platform allowing members to connect and share information, and the Nicsa Knowledge Center, a learning platform featuring Nicsa content and resources. “I look forward to seeing Nicsa’s momentum continue with this meaningful update. I’m also pleased that our members now have a platform upon which to share valuable resources and collaborate on the development of best practices,” said Jylanne Dunne, Vice President of the Diversity Project North America.
