Supertrends delivers white-label app to hedge fund Atlas Global Macro

We are proud to announce the completion and delivery of a customized white-label app for the Luxembourg-registered hedge fund Atlas Global Macro. The app is built on the API from the Supertrends platform, which makes it possible to source Supertrends content such as expert predictions and news stories about innovation prepared by the Supertrends editorial team. In addition to the Supertrends content, the investment team at Atlas Global Macro will publish financial analyses directly in the app – exclusively accessible for the fund’s investors. At the time of writing, Atlas is in the process of notifying its investors about accessing the app.

Supertrends CEO Kim Weis stated: “It has been a really exciting task to work with Atlas Global Macro and develop their exclusive investor app. We believe that the Atlas Global Macro app will distinguish the fund from their competitors in terms of client-offering, and that our Supertrends content can help the fund’s investment team stay ahead. The delivery of the white-label app is also a milestone in the history of Supertrends, as Atlas Global Macro will be our first white-label customer. We expect the financial industry to be one of our main markets, so attracting a hedge fund as our first white-label client is something we are very proud of.”

The Atlas Global Macro app fulfills this through the sourcing of content from Supertrends’ expert network and editorial team. Internally at our investment team, we extract valuable insights from the Supertrends content, and we are sure that this will also be the case for our investors. Furthermore, the app provides us with an ideal platform for providing continuous updates to our investors, including short analyses about financial markets and our views on possibilities in the market.”

Supertrends to Present About the Future at Upcoming Presidents Summit

We are delighted to share that Supertrends and Presidents Summit, Northern Europe’s leading business conference, have established a partnership in relation to the next Presidents Summit, which will take place on the 8th and 9th of November 2021 in Copenhagen.

At the Presidents Summit, Supertrends founder Lars Tvede will present the key super trends that are projected to transform the business landscape in the coming decades for an audience of more than 3,000 influential executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers. Furthermore, Supertrends will set up a booth at the summit to connect with participating executives.

Speaking about the collaboration, Supertrends CEO Kim Weis wrote: “Presidents Summit has in recent years evolved to become one of the leading business conferences in Europe. This is largely due to their ability to attract world-class speakers that inspire the Summit’s participants to innovate and grow their businesses. We are extremely humbled that Supertrends has been chosen to present in front of the Summit’s audience of top executives alongside some of the world’s leading management experts. This sign of recognition is a milestone in Supertrends’ development and is a testament to the quality of our insights into the trends shaping the future.”

Frederik Linderberg, CEO of Presidents Summit, added: “Now more than ever, it is imperative for business leaders to have a clear picture of what will happen in the future so that they can continue to lead with confidence. By using AI, text-mining, and crowdsourcing from experts, we believe Supertrends has established an effective method of gathering and displaying structured data about the future to the benefit of any decision-maker. We are therefore looking forward to welcoming Lars Tvede and the Supertrends team to our upcoming Summit, and we are curious to hear their take on the super trends that will shape the future.”

About Presidents Summit

Having started as a small conference a little over 10 years ago, Presidents Summit is now attended by more than 3,000 executives from 50+ countries and lists – among other prominent figures – Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, Steve Wozniak, Margrethe Vestager, and Jack Welch as past speakers. Moreover, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Presidents Summit successfully launched a free weekly online Global Masterclass with participants from all over the world, which has grown to become one of Europe’s largest business webinar series. This year, however, they are looking forward to once again welcoming attendees in-person to what will be a star-studded Summit. In addition to Lars Tvede, this year’s list of speakers includes the founder of the Business Model Canvas Alexander Osterwalder, Global CEO of Bain & Company Manny Maceda, and the Chairwoman of Egon Zehnder (the world’s leading executive search) Jill Ader, among others.
