Research Overview

The prime goal of research at CEM is to provide our clients with insights that will support decision making.  CEM's global investment databases represent a rich source of industry information that is used by clients, CEM and academics to conduct leading-edge research.  These unique databases include over 700 of the world's most influential funds.  Data histories on holdings, return, cost and risk extend back over 21 years.


Our investment research is communicated through our client reports and through articles published in respected industry and academic journals.  In addition to our own research, CEM has a unique relationship with the International Centre for Pension Management (“ICPM”) at the Rotman School of Management, University of  Toronto, Canada.  We collaborate with ICPM to support its goal of being a global catalyst for improving pension management.

In addition, we also undertake extensive Best Practice Reviews with respect to pension administration and provide comprehensive reports to our clients based on our findings.
