AUSTRALIA - London-based research consultancy Inalytics has won its first Australian mandate from the Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC).
Inalytics provides a quantitative analysis tool that identifies and assesses fund managers’ investment skills.
Amanda Field, managing director of Inalytics for the Asia/Pacific region, said: “Fund managers are hired for their investment skill, yet the traditional tools of RFPs and track records provide little insight into these skills. In a period of increased competition and choice, Australian superannuation funds, multi-managers and fund managers are increasingly demanding quantitative analysis to identify investment skill.”
QIC is one of Australia's largest institutional fund managers with more than $55bn currently under management for its Australian and overseas clients.
