Northern Trust announced today it has enhanced its peer universe comparison capabilities with the addition of intelligence derived from eVestment universe data.
The integration of eVestment’s universes expands clients’ access to a global array of more than 500 manager peer universes across six asset classes and 74 countries.
Through Northern Trust’s Investment Risk and Analytical Services (IRAS) peer universe comparison capabilities, clients can compare the performance of investment managers’ decile ranking against a broad universe of manager mandates ranging from public to private markets. By providing access to proprietary and third-party universes, Northern Trust offers comparisons at the investment plan, program, and manager level. eVestment manager universe data is integrated into Northern Trust’s web-based and published reporting applications, offering powerful data with a seamless client experience.
eVestment is a global leader in institutional investment data and analytics. A key feature of the eVestment data is the ability to deliver results to investors across base currencies, providing access to markets outside the United States.
“The collaboration with eVestment differentiates us in the manager peer comparison space,” said Ian Castledine, global head of Investment Risk & Analytical Services Product at Northern Trust. “With the integration of eVestment data into our flexible reporting modules, our clients have a broader, more complete view of their manager’s performance.”
