ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
eVestment®, a global provider of institutional investment data and
analytics, today announced eVestment SpotlightSM Analytics
and eVestment Spectrum (News - Alert)SM Analytics -- the first offerings in

This suite of cloud-based solutions will include four distinct tiers:

This launch marks a key milestone in the integration of eVestment's
proprietary Analytics tool with Fundspire and PerTrac, acquired by
eVestment in 2012. The suite will make it easy for clients to move from
one solution to another or to have multiple solutions in use by
different groups in the same firm. All solutions access the eVestment
data cloud of traditional and alternative strategies to ensure
continuity across the firm and across the industry. Data from
Morningstar, Hedge Fund Research and BarclayHedge, in addition to
leading benchmarks, are also available.
"Just as the global investment markets continue to advance and innovate,
so must the technology and content used to support strategic decisions,"
stated Matt Crisp, Founder and COO of eVestment. "Working intimately
with our clients, we have introduced a more modern user interface to
better support dynamic research and easy competitive analysis. This
provides the ability to quickly compare funds to benchmarks or peer
groups by dragging and dropping objects into numerous charts and views.
In addition, we have streamlined the underlying architecture to truly
integrate what were previously separate solutions -- leveraging our
extensive traditional and alternative global datasets. With the new
architecture, each tier of Analytics builds on the previous tier,
allowing our clients complete flexibility in choosing to pair their
users with the analytics they need most. "
