Unique Resources Support Broader, Deeper Analysis
NEPC’s performance measurement group provides our consulting team and clients with comparative data for in-depth analysis. NEPC uses the InvestorForce Performance Reporting Network (iPRN), part of Investment Metrics. which provides advanced performance analytics for over 50 institutional investment consultants. Client data from each consulting firm is anonymously pooled to build one of the largest comparative performance universes in the industry.
NEPC’s clients generally receive our quarterly Investment Performance Analysis (IPA) report which lays out returns, risk analyses, and universe comparisons for the total program and for most asset classes and styles. Monthly performance "flash" reports are also available. NEPC utilizes industry standard databases including eVestment and Morningstar and also offers analysis on alternative asset strategies such as private equity, real estate and hedge funds.
An overarching goal of our reporting is to isolate individual manager skill from market movements and policy and allocation/rebalancing decisions. The IPA report serves as an invaluable ongoing “scorecard” for clients in evaluating manager performance.
