From a regional perspective, investors and consultants in the U.S., U.K. and Asia ex-Japan have primarily driven the absolute increase in viewership, but there was notable variance in the trailing 4-quarter proportion of intra-regional equity views captured by China & Greater China equity strategies in each location – 0.35%, 3.38%, and 3.17% respectively at the end of Q4 2019. The proportion of equity views these strategies are capturing with investors and consultants in the Rest of World has been steadily rising as well, reaching a high point of 0.69% just last quarter.
