On June 2, 2015, eVestment announced its entry into the private equity market with the acquisition of TopQ, an innovator in private equity analytics. With this move, eVestment continues to deliver on its commitment to provide institutional quality data and analytics tools across all major asset classes – creating an efficient environment to exchange information and enabling more effective manager selection and monitoring.
Institutional investors have invested more than $3 trillion with private equity firms globally, and that amount is only expected to increase as those investors continue to seek diversity in their investment portfolios.* By joining forces with TopQ, eVestment will now be able to offer the broad private equity technology and data solutions that the institutional investor community has been seeking.
TopQ is a provider of web-based tools that make the creation, analysis, and distribution of private equity performance data more efficient and effective for fund managers and institutional investors.
TopQ is used by fund managers and investors globally. By using TopQ, fund managers can save significant amounts of time creating their track record and also simplify the sharing of performance data to enhance their investor relations.
