The best part of eVestment is that it is a one stop shop for investment research. It's very helpful in comparing products and as a source of data.
What do you dislike?
All data fill relies on the investment manager.
Recommendations to others considering the product
This product is excellent for traditional investments. If you are looking for data on alternative investments I would not recommend it. However, you can upload and store return streams that are not in their database for your own analysis. This tool is very helpful. eVestment has also done a great job working with us to create templated reporting for analysis we like to have repeated monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc. As mentioned before, all data is directly from the manager which is very accurate. However some managers choose not to populate the data or are delayed on populating the data. I think eVestment could do a better job of pushing managers to keep things up to date. A nice feature they do provide however is the ability to "ping" managers to let them know you would like the data to be updated.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Most of my job is comparing investments and this is an excellent tool to do so, as well as a reliable, verifiable, and aggregated source of data.
