New, customizable interface gives greater visibility into fund flows, allocations, and strategies
BOSTON, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Informa Financial Intelligence's EPFR ("EPFR"), an industry leader in fund flow and allocation data, released their new platform this week. The new platform is a scalable research and analytics site, utilizing flow and allocation data to drive investment signals, create data visualizations, and support analysis and insight.
EPFR provides strategists, researchers, traders and investors with information on changing global investor sentiment, as well as how their peers are allocating assets amongst countries, sectors and industries. EPFR's fund flows (the amount of cash flowing into and out of funds worldwide) are broken down by asset class, fund group and investment manager, then even further to the individual fund and share class levels. EPFR tracks over $30 trillion in assets under management (AUM) and can deliver data monthly, weekly or daily. Its core datasets are fund flows and fund allocations, which feed into hybrid datasets including country and sector flows.
"EPFR delivers a complete picture of institutional and individual investor flows and fund manager allocations driving global markets," said Cameron Brandt, Director of Research at EPFR. "The new platform fully integrates our comprehensive flow data, customizable strategies, and timely research. This makes it easier to identify trends and spot inflection points that otherwise may have been missed."
The flexibility of the EPFR platform allows clients to customize data and strategies so they align with their goals. Also, IFI developed the platform structure in a way that allows for continuous addition of new data sets, like stock flows and stock allocations, as they become available.
