The first operational performance analysis of tier one investment managers has been published by FSmetrics Limited, covering 24 asset managers investing in equities globally.

“Thanks to the ongoing support of the buy and sell side, we are in a position to capitalize on a valuable proposition: namely that we can show asset managers – and their institutional brokers – where the operational pressure points are,” said Graeme Austin, FSmetrics managing director. “And the underlying data for this analysis comes from those who are experiencing the operational activity at first hand.”

Using data provided by institutional brokers, the Investment Manager Performance FSmetrics report covers operational performance across four key areas: transaction timeliness, transaction accuracy, transaction management and SSI deployment. Typical of the elements being rated is the speed of turnaround of allocations once the trade has been executed

The service is set to expand into coverage of fixed income activity by the fourth quarter of 2006. FSmetrics intends to increase the depth as well as the breadth of the analysis as the service beds down and evolves.
