The analytics products, dubbed eVestment Spotlight Analytics and eVestment Spectrum Analytics, represent the first offerings in a suite of cloud-based solutions slated for release during the first half of 2014.
Spotlight Analytics, according to a statement from the company, is for financial professionals and retirement plan sponsors seeking easy access to investment data through an intuitive, low cost platform.
Spectrum Analytics, on the other hand, is for users requiring richer data through optional add-ons for asset flows, search trends, holdings and peer analysis.
Both tools include customizable dashboards, though Spectrum features more interactive charting and more advanced search capabilities, among other differences.
The new suite simplifies client efforts to move from one eVestment solution to another and to have multiple solutions in use by different groups in the same firm. All solutions access the company’s data cloud of traditional and alternative strategies to ensure continuity across firm and industry. Data from Morningstar, Hedge Fund Research and BarclayHedge, in addition to leading benchmarks, is also incorporated.
