S&P Capital IQ, a leading provider of multi-asset class data, research and analytics, today announced the launch of its Global Markets Intelligence group. The new advisory business provides risk-based non-discretionary equity, fixed income portfolio strategies, asset allocation, and fund review services to asset managers and currently advises on over $18 billion in total assets.
Global Markets Intelligence operates through S&P Investment Advisory Services in the US, and McGraw Hill Research Europe Limited in the UK and Europe. The group is supported by S&P Capital IQ’s broad, proprietary arsenal of data, analytics and research.
“The Global Markets Intelligence business is a great example of how S&P Capital IQ continues to leverage proprietary content, analytics and intellectual property to help our customers drive growth,” said Lou Eccleston, President, S&P Capital IQ and S&P Indices.
“The key to the Global Markets Intelligence approach is that our methodologies are built with risk mitigation components as core, not as a separate overlay. This risk-based approach is at the heart of generating superior risk-adjusted returns,” said Michael Thompson, Managing Director and Head, Global Markets Intelligence at S&P Capital IQ.
