Opalesque Industry Update - Inalytics, the firm that identifies investment skill, has been appointed by global asset manager, F&C Investments (F&C), to provide analysis relating to the skill levels across internal and external fund managers.

Inalytics will provide analytical services in support of F&C’s evaluation, due diligence and monitoring of managers across ten long-only funds managed in-house. Inalytics will also evaluate a number of external managers, operating primarily in the Dutch market, to assist F&C’s institutional manager selection team.”

Commenting on the appointment, Rick Di Mascio, Chief Executive and founder of Inalytics, said: “There is increasing industry demand for extensive and ongoing evaluation of fund manager skill. Fund managers are under more scrutiny than ever before and identifying areas where skill is prevalent, or lacking, is absolutely vital in such a crowded and competitive market. We look forward to working with F&C and helping them evaluate the skill levels of their managers.”

Richard Wilson, Head of Equities at F&C Asset Management, added: “It is important to utilise every available tool when examining the decision-making and skill levels of fund managers. Inalytics will help us evaluate and monitor our managers in even more detail, identifying their specific strengths and weaknesses, while also providing the vital element of transparency for investors.”
