Investment fund research and analytics firm Strategic Insight (SI), an Asset International Company, is adding a new liquid alternatives research practice area, reflecting the growing importance of the asset class for institutional investors.
Within this practice area, SI will publish a quarterly overview of the liquid alternative investment marketplace, along with periodic topical studies (known as “Alternative Insights”) and webcasts devoted to this growing area of the investment fund market.
SI says the Liquid Alternatives Quarterly report series will provide an overview of key ongoing trends within the liquid alternative marketplace, for both mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The research effort will capture investor demand trends, top-selling managers and individual funds, and important product innovation themes.
The current inaugural issue focuses on full-year 2014 results for the asset class. Moving forward, this report series will be published on a quarterly basis and analyze activity within the preceding quarter, SI explains.
