Style Analytics, the provider of factor-based analysis software for investment professionals, announces that it is enhancing its Peer Insights product with data from eVestment, a global leader in institutional investment data and analytics. Peer Insights, designed for the buy-side, provides objective factor-by-factor comparisons between individual funds or peer groups enabling the user to identify underlying exposures to sectors, countries and risk to make superior investment choices.
Over 75% of the top 50 institutional investment consultants worldwide rely on eVestment data and analytics for manager research and screening. eVestment is the largest, most comprehensive institutional database of traditional and alternative strategies in the institutional market, offering users deep insight into institutional managers and their products.
The eVestment data available via Peer Insights will provide asset owners and consultants with a representative view of each institutional manager’s performance at the peer and fund level and help asset managers differentiate their products in a crowded market. As firms are increasingly using factor approaches to support communication about their investment decisions and drivers of performance, Peer Insights with eVestment data will become an ever more essential tool.
Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of Style Analytics, commented, “Style and eVestment have had a very strong partnership for many years now. For Style, strengthening this partnership with an unrivalled and unique value proposition will be of great benefit to our common clients.”
“The opportunity to integrate eVestment’s unique and powerful data with Style Analytics’ Peer Insights product is one more way eVestment is working to bring data-driven insights that allow investment professionals to achieve better outcomes,” said David Keogh, managing director of eVestment’s London office. “We’re excited about this integration and are eager to see the impact it has on the investment professionals using Peer Insights.”
