Institutional investors have only partially backed their own predictions for equities becoming the most attractive asset class for this year, according to the Q4 2012 fund flows report published by Camradata.
Global investment data provider CAMRADATA is starting to screen the companies included in major equity indices for environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, and comparing them to scores for more than 1,000 other companies across the world.
Markets continued to offer only difficult conditions in Q2, giving up much of the gains registered in Q1, according to CAMRADATA’s latest IQ report.
Fees for equity managers are around 70% higher than those charged by fixed income specialists, but hedge fund managers remain the most expensive with the added demand of a performance fee, according to a report from fund services firm CAMRADATA.
Camradata Analytical Services and BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research have launched ESG Geographic Portfolio Analysis to help institutional investors identify environmental, social and governmental (ESG) exposure in their international exposures.
UBS, Legal & General and Baillie Gifford are among the top performing managers identified in the latest quarterly quantitative ratings published by Camradata.
