Quantitative Data

The Role of Enhance

Enhance Group provides analysis of investment providers to assist the judges when they are considering the submissions for Investment Team of the Year. The analysis includes a review of investment performance and risk over a 36-month (Jan 16-Dec 18) and 12-month (Jan 18-Dec 18) time period to confirm that investors have not only received good service (which will be included in the written submissions), but also good results.

Enhance provides consistent analysis across all of the service providers through individual portfolio reviews. The results are then summarised for the judges using ’heat maps’ that allow for easy comparison.

The process is designed to efficiently allow the service providers to supply the requisite data, and the judges to be confident that the performance has been appraised through a robust process, ensuring that the award goes to a worthy winner.
