LONDON (November 16, 2023) – ISS Market Intelligence, a leading global provider of data, analytics, insights, media, and events solutions to the global financial services industry and part of the ISS STOXX GmbH group of companies, today announced that it had signed an expression of interest to acquire the assets of The Pridham Report.
The Pridham Report is a leading source for fund sales benchmarking and investment trends in the U.K. asset management industry. Established more than two decades ago, it is widely regarded as essential reading for fund managers operating in the U.K. In addition to sales and asset flow data, the Report provides analysis and commentary on the latest developments in the U.K. fund market as well as online database access for further analysis and insights.
“Adding the Pridham Report to our U.K.- and EMEA-focused solutions would further our ability to help clients understand their competitive position and market trends affecting their growth across both retail and institutional channels,” said Ben Doob, Head of ISS Market Intelligence, a unit of ISS STOXX within which The Pridham Report would sit. “Pridham Report content is highly complementary to similar benchmarking solutions we offer in other major markets, and we look forward to delivering to clients an even more comprehensive set of intelligence.”
Anna Pridham, Editor of The Pridham Report, commented: “I’m excited for the next chapter of The Pridham Report as part of ISS Market Intelligence, which has a long history of working with our existing client base, understands the dataset, and has the resources to in future expand our reporting capabilities.”
Subject to customary diligence processes, definitive documentation and closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close prior to the end of 2023.
