La Française AM partners with S&P Capital IQ on asset selection
Asset management firm La Française AM has partnered with the Global Markets Intelligence team at S&P Capital IQ to establish a global credit expertise and expand its investor-driven business development.
The partnership will enable La Francaise to use S&P Capital IQ’s proprietary Risk-to-Price (R2P) methodology for its asset selection and allocation decision-making.
S&P Capital IQ’s Risk-to-Price methodology calculates a relative measure of how well a corporate bond compensates its owner, through yield, for its underlying market and credit risks.
“In a world where credit market intelligence is key, who could be better than S&P Capital IQ to team up with and provide us with decision support, credit data analysis and advisory services?” said Patrick Rivière, managing director at La Française AM.
Lou Eccleston, president of S&P Capital IQ & S&P indices added: “This complementary partnership brings together two talented teams and establishes a platform for collaboration between leaders in their respective disciplines to create real value for the clients of La Française AM.”
