Independent proprietary research drives our manager search, monitoring and specialist sector research effort.
We dissect manager performance, fundamental and quality drivers to determine if investing outcomes are driven by “skill” or “luck” and whether they are “true to label”.
Our corporate DNA is to seek less obvious but highly relevant information and de-emphasis highly obvious but relevant information.
Some of our our research solutions include:
- Manager Search Solutions– manager screening, selection and in-depth due diligence using proprietary Fundamental, Performance & Qualitative analytics framework.
- Monitoring Solutions – regular performance and risk monitoring of single/multi-asset funds, investment managers and investment menus using our industry leading analytics platforms. Includes a comprehensive risk and return attribution analysis.
