10 February 2020
Asset managers track institutional investor and consultant activity on the eVestment platform to uncover trends about their universes and strategies. This viewership activity can be used as a leading indicator of future flows (both inflows and outflows), helping you to understand regional preferences and any home country or regional biases by considering research activity by consultant and investor domicile. eVestment Advantage data is updated daily.

How does your research activity compare versus these strategies? Are your strategies seeing more than their fair share of attention relative to peers? What defines these strategies: Are they top performers? Are they concentrated? How do their fees compare relative to peers? Research activity, combined with ‘perceived peers’, can be the first step managers take to identify likely competitors as they compile their due diligence materials and articulate their positioning with respect to specific managers. The strategies below were most researched (viewed) by consultants and investors during 2019.*

*A view is a dedicated action by a consultant or an investor within the eVestment platform to take a concerted effort to better understand an investment strategy. This may entail a review of narratives, performance, characteristics, holdings etc.
