That’s why world-class manager research starts with a comprehensive global database.
How to identify the best managers in the world:
Start with the largest pool of managers
Manager screens should start with the largest possible talent pool, to ensure you’re seeing the entire world of options — not just a narrow set.
Go behind headlines numbers
Most top-quartile managers are delivering similar performance. What differentiates one portfolio team from another is how they’re delivering, their thought process and their ability to remain disciplined. Multi-dimensional analysis — quantitative and qualitative — leads to better screening results.
Monitor emerging talent
Every quarter, 500+ institutional products are added to the eVestment database alone. Many of these come from smaller, emerging managers that have the ability to pursue opportunities with less constraint than larger, established products.
