Financial Time's Assanka Rebrands as FT Labs

Apr 30, 2012

Financial Times purchased web and application developer Assanka in January of this year and now it has decided to rename the company. Assanka will now be FT Labs in a way to fully integrate Assanka under the Financial Times umbrella and build up the brand.

The FT Labs team will continue to develop the FT's mobile offering and other digital services like annotation and clippings tool, as well as work closely with other FT senior technology and development teams on new products. FT Labs will participate in the FT's inaugural hack day on May 23-24.
