eVestment was founded in the US in 2000 to help gather asset manager data on behalf of consultants servicing pension funds and other institutional investors. Institutional Investors and consultants need a large amount of information about an asset management strategy before to recommend an investment.
eVestment became the top 3rd party consultant databases and is now regarded by all asset managers as the most important gateway to institutional investors.
eVestment has been evolved to its business model to serve not only consultant but the broader institutional asset management community: now providing business intelligence type services, helping asset managers in managing and growing their business.
