Equity strategies snag top spots in December
January 7, 2019

All of the top viewed institutional investment strategies viewed by investors and consultants using eVestment in December 2018 were equity strategies, according to the December 2018 eVestment Advantage Viewership Report. And all but one of the products that saw the largest increase in views during the month were equity strategies as well.

eVestment says this strong global showing for equity strategies was likely driven by December's volatile global equities markets and reflects how its viewership data can uncover unique insights into the investment strategies, geographies and asset classes investors and consultants are looking at and the market forces potentially driving that interest.

Some other findings from the report identified as interesting by eVestment include:

Europe ex-UK investors and consultants had a stronger interest in hedge funds in December than eVestment users in other regions the company tracks, with three hedge funds making the list of the most viewed strategies overall and the strategies with the most increase in views month-over-month by users in that region.  

Turnover in the global top viewed products list was notable in December with 15 new entrants. Eight of the top products which showed a rapid rise in interest were also part of the list, including those in the top three: 

Altrinsic Global Advisors LLC: Altrinsic International Equity (US-based clients responsible for 94.3 percent of this product's December views);

Fiera Capital Corporation: Fiera Capital Global Equity (US-based made up 56 percent and Canada-based 31.9 percent of views);

Iridian Asset Management LLC: Iridian Private Business Value/Mid-Cap Equity (all views from users located in US, with 60.3 percent coming from clients in the Midwest and 31.5 percent from clients in the Northeast).

The top two firms showing a rapid rise in interest among Asia ex-Japan users, Dimensional Fund Advisors LP and Cohen & Steers Capital Management Inc, also had the top two most viewed products in the region: Dimensional Fund Advisors LP: All Country Small Cap Strategy and Cohen & Steers Capital Management, Inc.: Cohen & Steers European Real Estate Securities.

Europe ex-UK and Africa/Middle East were the only regions in which institutional investors and consultants had fixed income strategies show up at the number one spot among December's most viewed products lists.

For Europe ex-UK clients, the US-focussed Neuberger Berman: Short Duration High Yield was the most viewed strategy followed by an emerging markets-focussed hedge fund, Greylock Capital Management LLC: Greylock Global Focus Master Fund Ltd.

For Africa/Middle East, the globally focussed Morgan Stanley Investment Management: Global Aggregate Fixed Income was the most viewed followed by the US-focussed Amundi Pioneer Asset Management: Amundi Pioneer Multi-Asset Ultrashort Income strategy.
