EVestment, a global provider of institutional investment data intelligence and analytic solutions, announced today a new attribution platform offering seamless integration into eVestment Analytics - and powered by the industry's most comprehensive institutional holdings database.
Delivered via a SaaS platform, eVestment Attribution serves professionals in the institutional investment market including asset managers, consultants and plan sponsors. For asset managers, the new attribution platform offers a deeper level of competitive analysis while continuing to safeguard sensitive manager-holdings information from competition. For consultants and plan sponsors, the platform offers a more efficient way to use attribution as a natural part of manager selection and monitoring processes.
Using holdings data already present in the eVestment database, end-users can eliminate the time-consuming process of soliciting individual manager holdings data, populating a sizable listing of results, then uploading the data into a stand-alone attribution platform for analysis. With eVestment, complexity is eliminated since end-users can evaluate the impact of security, sector and regional decisions as well as style, timing and activity components while assessing other quantitative and qualitative information on funds - all with just a few clicks.
"Attribution is a powerful approach to analysis, but it can be a cumbersome and time consuming one if you have to aggregate the necessary data from multiple sources. With full integration into our database, we've simplified the process and made attribution a dynamic feature available to any client type," eVestment COO Matt Crisp said. "Once you're logged in, there's no need to migrate data from other systems."
