Thomson Reuters today launched Lipper for Investment Management, a new investment management software solution that leverages Lipper's high quality and comprehensive global fund data and content.
As the global economic downturn and stock market volatility force asset managers to improve their research methods to stay ahead of the competition, Lipper for Investment Management provides highly efficient fund analysis and reporting on over 197,000 share classes covering mutual funds, closed-end funds, exchange traded funds, hedge funds, domestic pension and insurance products in 60 countries and fund holdings in 12 major markets. In addition, the hosted desktop product includes Lipper Leaders, Lipper's mutual fund rating system, and charting capabilities that enable risk and performance analyses. The platform is available in UK and US English and Japanese with coverage of local market classifications. It will soon be supporting German and simplified and traditional Chinese.
"Today more than ever before, fund managers are increasingly seeking independent investment insight to provide an edge that differentiates them from their peers." said Andre Lavoie, Global Managing Director, Investment Management, at Thomson Reuters. "Lipper for Investment Management provides comprehensive global fund coverage unrivaled in the marketplace today in order for them to efficiently spot opportunities and profit from better investment decisions."
