S&P Capital IQ has launched a new advisory business, dubbed Global Markets Intelligence, which uses the vendor's proprietary data, analytics and research -- including its ratings, indexes and Compustat analysis platform -- to provide risk-based non-discretionary equity, fixed income portfolio strategies, asset allocation and fund review services to asset managers.

"The key to the Global Markets Intelligence approach is that our methodologies are built with risk mitigation components as core, not as a separate overlay. This risk-based approach is at the heart of generating superior risk-adjusted returns," says Michael Thompson, managing director and head of Global Markets Intelligence at S&P Capital IQ.

The Global Markets Intelligence business operates as part of the vendor's Investment Advisory Services group in the US, and McGraw-Hill Research Europe Limited in the UK and Europe.
