Further, it will offer robust charting and report creation functions reflecting rolling statistics and correlations of a fund over varying investment periods. Fundspire provides a wide set of performance and risk metrics and market data for more than 1,500 indices covering global equity, fixed income, and hedge fund benchmarks.

“We are very pleased to enter into this strategic relationship with Fundspire,” said Rafay Farooqui, Co-Founder & Managing Principal of CAISfunds. “Like CAISfunds, Fundspire shares our drive for innovation and commitment to client service. We are confident that this new partnership will help us in our mission to provide a truly independent, comprehensive solution for global wealth managers.”
