HONG KONG - February 4, 2019 - Wizpresso Limited today partners with Ivey Business School Asia to support the prestigious Waqf Fund Leadership Grooming Program ("the Program") by sponsoring an Action Learning Project ("the Project"). As part of the Project, a team of banking professionals selected by the Program will act as consultants and engage us to independently review our self-service, cloud-based research platform and validate our analytics framework. We believe this collaboration will further strengthen our product capabilities through a joint-academic research process.
