October 2, 2019, Paris – eVestment, a Nasdaq company and a global leader in institutional investment data and analytics, and insti7, the leading French independent institutional investment consultant, announced today an agreement under which eVestment will collect and manage insti7’s asset manager data and insti7 will incorporate eVestment data analytics solutions into their manager selection and monitoring processes.

By adopting eVestment, insti7 consultants will be able to better understand and analyse data from asset managers with whom they have existing relationships.

These asset managers report on more than 24,500 institutional investment products across asset classes, geographies and investment styles, representing more than $US42 trillion in assets under management.

Insti7 will collect asset managers’ data using eVestment and encourages asset managers to submit data to eVestment as soon as possible in order to facilitate insti7 analysis process. Asset managers can contact the eVestment team for guidance via insti7@evestment.com.

“eVestment enables investors and consultants like insti7 to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis on the entire collective of asset managers eligible for a mandate, rather than a short list,” states Jean-Philippe Quittot, Managing Director – Head of EMEA at eVestment. “Through this, they are able to find the absolute best-fit managers for their clients.”
