eVestment Asset Flows

Asset Flows

Assess the flows of global assets to gauge trends and quantify demand.

Asset Flows-Overview

As an institutional consultant, investor or asset manager, you need to understand where global money is moving in order to make more informed decisions. Integrated directly into eVestment Analytics, Asset Flows is an interactive look into the size, health, and direction of the global market.

For Asset Managers

  • Quantify and track industry flow trends. View which universes and asset classes are experiencing the largest inflows and outflows. 
  • Gauge demand. Learn what types of investors you should be marketing to. Are the inflows in a particular universe coming from public pensions or endowments?  
  • Identify which geographies to target. Understand where the investors that are interested in your universe are located. Are European investors going after strategies like yours? Are Japanese investors exiting similar strategies? 
  • Quantify market share. Based on AUM, what percentage of the market do you own? Are you in a defensive position to retain assets or do you need to go on offense and try to potentially capture flows from other managers? 

For Institutional Investors and Consultants

  • Quantify and track industry flow trends. View which universes and asset classes are experiencing the largest inflows and outflows. 
  • Assess the health of a manager and their universe. Inform your decision-making strategy for portfolio construction and allocation considerations. 
  • Better understand peer behavior. View the products and universes gaining inflows or losing assets from investors like you. 
  • Gain a 360 degree view of asset flow data. Slice and dice the data however best works for you – whether you want to look at asset flows by geography, by asset class, by investor type, etc. Drill down from a universe level all the way down to the individual strategy level. 

“We like to keep our finger on the pulse of the market. So if we know when a specific asset class has experienced net inflows or outflows, that is important data for us to be aware of as we look to manage our products and develop new products. When we were introduced to Asset Flows, it immediately solved a need.”
