Strategic Insight Partners with Latin Asset Management to Offer Enhanced Latam Market Insights

Strategic Insight, the leading provider of data management, distribution intelligence, research, and marketing services to the global asset management community, announced today a partnership with the specialist research firm Latin Asset Management, a sister company of Fund Pro Latin America. With the announcement, the two firms also introduced their first collaborative report, the Latin America Cross-Border Business Pulse.

“This first innovative report charts new waters by combining quantitative flow and AUM data from Strategic Insight and Latin Asset Management with expert views of senior investment-industry professionals who share their insights as part of the Latin America Cross-Border Fund Alliance,” said Carlos Cardone, Senior Managing Director at Strategic Insight. “This report, the earliest result of our partnership, is just a first step in our mission of responding to the market-intelligence needs of global asset managers and others doing business in the US Offshore, Latam Offshore and Latam institutional markets.”

In anticipation of the launch of the Pulse, Latin Asset Management created the Latin America Cross-Border Fund Alliance. The members of this select group of global firms with significant ties in the Latin America retail and institutional space, will be providing direct feedback on market issues, including policy and strategy changes at key distribution houses, use of passive products, the impact of new regulation and oversight controls.

“We are working directly with executives at our alliance member firms to gather their unique perspectives on current product demand within the Latin American fund-selector community,” said Thomas Ciampi , CEO of Latin Asset Management. “Their inside knowledge of the evolving distribution landscape in the US Offshore, Latam Offshore and Latam Institutional markets makes the intelligence provided by the Strategic Insight data even more valuable.”
