New Data Analytics Platform launched for Institutional Asset Management

June 19, 2017

NEW YORK, June 19 –Squirro and fin|searches announced the launch of a new analytics platform that provides first-of-its-kind insights into the institutional asset management space.

The new platform, fin|analytics, takes the in-depth research on North American-based institutional investors compiled by fin|searches and combines it with the powerful data analytics technology that Squirro has developed, offering users a differentiated view of the relationships between institutional investors, their consultants and managers.

“Our new fin|analytics feature provides asset managers and consultants with the tools necessary to succeed in today’s marketplace. A user can now understand the hiring trends of institutions and consultants across all strategies, learn more about a competitor’s client makeup and anticipate upcoming shifts in asset allocation through visualising key data points, among many other uses. We have taken our core strength of reporting on investment manager searches to another level through this partnership with Squirro, the leader in data analytics technology,” said Matthew McCue, co-founder and managing partner at fin|news.

fin|searches and Squirro’s partnership began with a project for a common client, which led to the concept of combining both firm’s strengths to create a platform unrivaled in the industry.
