eVestment Brings New UK LGPS Intelligence to Public Plan IQ Solution
March 15, 2018

eVestment, which hails itself as the leader in institutional investment data and analytics, says it has expanded the data in its Public Plan IQ solution to include information from United Kingdom local government pension schemes (LGPS), giving Public Plan IQ users around the world unique and unprecedented insights into the UK's LGPS industry.

Public Plan IQ offers users a searchable platform that provides access to public pension plan reporting and board documents, including manager presentations, consultant recommendations, video presentations, fee schedules, upcoming allocation changes, upcoming mandates and more. Previously Public Plan IQ focussed on US public pensions.

eVestment notes that there are currently more than 25,000 documents housed on Public Plan IQ's platform covering public pensions in the United Kingdom and the United States. Of those, more than 2,500 are focused on UK LGPS, with more documents on both countries' pensions being added every day. More than 60+ United Kingdom LGPS are covered including Greater Manchester and West Midlands, plus the eight LGPS pools: London CIV, Wales, Brunel, Border to Coast, LPP, Access, Northern and Central regions.   

Public Plan IQ was launched in the United States in 2015 by Debra Gregory, a long-time investment industry professional. eVestment purchased Public Plan IQ in November of 2016. More than 150 traditional and alternative institutional asset managers in the United States and around the world utilize the Public Plan IQ service.

eVestment says that information about United Kingdom LGPS will be provided at no additional cost to current Public Plan IQ clients and will be bundled at current rates with the information from US public plans for new Public Plan IQ clients. It adds that more than 150 traditional and alternative asset managers currently utilize the service.
