About the Report

Understanding the firms, their products, and strategy universes of greatest and rising interest within the global institutional community is a unique advantage for asset managers, and an intriguing view into regional peer preferences for investors and consultants. The goal of this report is to provide all parties clarity on evolving themes and preferences as they emerge each month.

Wellington Overtakes BlackRock as Most Viewed Firm on eVestment

Wellington Management overtook BlackRock as the most viewed firm by investors and consultants using the eVestment platform in February. Wellington’s International Contrarian Value product (an EAFE all cap value equity strategy) was the firm’s most viewed product, while second-place BlackRock’s Emerging Markets Alpha Tilts (an EM large cap core equity strategy) took over as its most viewed product after a two-month stint of its Strategic Income Opportunities strategy being at the top.

Report Highlights:

  • Global REIT surges to the top of the rising universe list across all investors and consultants using the eVestment platform.
  • Rising interest for fixed income seen across multiple regions. Fixed income universes were at, or near, the top of almost every regional rising universes list in March.
  • Asia ex-Japan is the only region to have hedge fund universes within their most viewed universes list for the month of March.
