In an average week, our research team handles 40 changes in fund manager responsibilities. This is usually the result of managers moving from one group to another or taking on new funds.
Citywire has been conducting this fund manager research for over 10 years. We track more than 9,000 managers globally and our findings have already had a big impact on the way professional investors assess the people running their money.
Our new in-house system, Citywire Discovery, will present all this information in a new light, allowing our readers to explore more deeply the world of fund manager performance and fund manager moves.
Each week some snippets from Citywire Discovery will be presented on the New Model Adviser website. It might be the expertise a group has in a particular sector, the collective or individual performance of its managers, or the managers’ experience and tenure. Beneath these highlights there is a wealth of data about the people managing your clients’ assets.
It has been many years in the making but this analysis will now drive the fund manager coverage we provide in this magazine and on the website.
