AlphaQ February 2017

RELATED TOPICS​

Welcome to the first issue of AlphaQ for 2017 and what a start to the year we have seen, with macro events dominating and the markets apparently lapping it up.

We bring you a profile of Eastspring, one of the largest asset management firms in the world, with USD140 billion under management, that is not so well known outside its native Asia Pacific but whose roots lie in the much-loved Prudential. Our man from the Pru is Guy Strapp, interviewed here.

If you want to get ahead in these challenging times, how about you sort your Woozle from your Eagle Alpha – we profile two firms offering a different approach to data gathering for investment managers. We also have a ‘Bloomberg’ for private equity offering from CEPRES – a FinTech company that has developed a private credit analysis tool called PE.Analyzer.

You may not have heard about 871(m) yet but the 30 per cent withholding tax on dividend-equivalent payments for non-US investors will have an impact. Your guide to this issue comes from Jon Brose and Craig Hickernell and Brett R Cotler of Seward & Kisssel LLP. 

Finally, this month sees Randeep Grewal, our regular columnist, quote Elvis and deep dive into lonesome stocks.

Enjoy the read,
