New site emphasizes global think tank’s research, analysis and corporate services
As part of its recent spinoff and renaming to better reflect its role as a global think tank focusing on the intersection of retail, technology and fashion, Fung Global Retail & Technology has introduced a new website, http://www.FungGlobalRetailTech.com, announced Deborah Weinswig, Managing Director. The website launches today, September 7, 2016.
Earlier this year, Fung Global Retail & Technology spun off from the Fung Business Intelligence Centre, forming a new subsidiary of Fung Group, a 110-year-old family-run group of companies whose core businesses are engaged in trading, logistics, distribution and retailing. With offices in Hong Kong, London and New York, Fung Global Retail & Technology provides research, analysis, thought leadership and advisory services to corporations at the forefront of their industries.
Recent research has focused on Robotics, AI, Deep Learning, augmented and virtual reality, the impact of the Silver Generation on retail, the effect of technology on aging and the growing influence of Generation Z. In addition, the firm issues regular analyses of major retailers around the globe.
“Our Fung Global Retail & Technology research group has experienced tremendous growth and success over the last two years, and we believe expanding our research and analytics offering was the logical next step for the business,” Weinswig notes. “The full-length reports, brief snapshots and videos produced by our team are a primer for the future. This new website will make these resources easier to find while reflecting the breadth of our analysis and thought leadership in retail, technology and fashion.”
In addition to downloadable copies of the firm’s research, the new site houses Weinswig’s video reports, a calendar of industry events and corporate news.
An advocate for innovation, creativity and the implementation of cutting-edge technologies, Weinswig joined Fung Global Retail & Technology in 2014 to offer her unique viewpoints on the disruptive technology trends and innovations that are reshaping the global retail industry. Recent reports issued by Fung Global Retail & Technology include: “France Retail Overview: Characteristics, Developments and Prospects,” and “The State of Consumers in the US and China.” Fung Global Retail & Technology’s reports and analyses can be found at http://www.FungGlobalRetailTech.com and http://www.DeborahWeinswig.com.
