LONDON (November 14, 2023) – ISS Market Intelligence (ISS MI), a unit of ISS STOXX and leading global provider of data, analytics, insights, media, and events solutions to the global financial services industry, today announced enhancements to its Simfund platform to deliver detailed fee and expense data for the Irish domiciled fund universe.
The comprehensive fee and expense intelligence covers over 100 unique data attributes, is captured at the share class level, and is updated annually and refreshed monthly. Leveraging the powerful and customizable analytics capabilities offered by the Simfund platform, users will now be able to include in their analysis detailed fee breakdowns for Irish domiciled funds and can quickly and easily create custom peer group universes for benchmarking and comparative analysis, all in a single platform. The addition of this dataset eliminates the need to integrate data from multiple sources, in turn allowing users more time to focus on extracting actionable insights from the data.
“The addition of Irish domiciled fee and expense intelligence on our Simfund platform addresses increasing industry and regulatory attention on shareholder costs, given the growing Irish fund universe. The latest enhancement to Simfund aligns with ISS MI’s commitment to providing industry-leading data and analytics to meet our clients’ evolving needs,” said Ben Doob, Head of ISS Market Intelligence. “Going forward, we will continue to expand on this initiative with continued investments to proactively address the growing body of regulation in this area.”
