Case Study: Public Plan IQ

eVestment spoke with Nick Allen, Tim Poulin and Jim Cockerill about their experiences using Public Plan IQ. Poulin and Allen are on the institutional sales team, and Cockerill works with consultant relations.

Allen said that finding information used to be a manual, reactive process. “The information was basically inaccessible unless you already knew exactly what you were looking for,” he said. “You might never even know it existed. Public Plan IQ takes all the hassle out of finding any information we need.”

“It’s a great way to learn more about what our competition is doing,” Cockerill said. “We’re trying to get an understanding of our competitors, whether that is through a prospect presentation or seeing how they’re connecting with certain consultants.”
