Providing the full picture of investor positioning entails:
Trounceflow is the only company that does this work.
Currently, our products fully cover the Emerging Market Debt asset class.
We’re in early stages of development in the following asset classes, where we have beta versions of our products:
Fund Flows reflect the net of all cash inflows and outflows from a mutual fund or ETF.
Within Emerging Market Debt we provide fund flow data based on a sample of 408 funds with $318bn AUM.
Fund Flows = fund cash inflows – fund cash outflows
A net inflow increases the cash a fund has available to purchase assets, while a net outflow decreases it.
We produce daily analytics on the flow of funds into 5 major asset classes.
Understand end demand from investors for different investment products, asset classes, sectors, geographies and currencies
Understand changes in investor risk appetite and risk aversion
Track the total funds available for investment per asset class and segment
Predict rises and drops in asset prices
Identify in- and out-of-favour asset classes
Compare your own funds growth versus a peer average
Fund allocation data provide insight into how the investor community is positioned relative to their benchmarks.
We produce monthly analytics on fund allocations covering 4 asset classes which you may view through numerous filters (rates, fx, duration, yield, cash allocations, credit ratings).
Our work is formed from hard data, this is not a survey, nor a best guess.
Understand investor positioning and behaviour across many dimensions
Be better prepared for news and shifts in the market
Anticipate positioning changes and strategize accordingly
Take advantage of asymmetrical risk: bet on big wins and small losses
We provide data on cross-border transactions (foreign buying and selling) in the form of cross-border flows data, as well as in the form of foreign holdings data.
Cross-border flows show a dynamic picture – buying and selling of a country’s securities (bonds and equities) by non-residents, while foreign holdings show the total holdings of foreigners at a point in time. The former shows flows, while the latter shows stock value.
Track new money (both on the equity and debt sides) that gets invested into a given country
Appraise the confidence in a country’s economy based on the magnitude of inflows
Estimate the current positioning of investors before the allocations data is published for countries which publish their cross-border flows data at a higher frequency
Predict the change in cross-border flows to one EM country based on another EM country as cross-border flows to emerging markets tend to be correlated
Trounceflow helps clients understand a Market’s Structure by presenting key data on its supply and demand characteristics.
On the supply side we provide data on investable assets, by instrument type, issuer type, currency, maturity.
On the demand side we provide data on the holders of investable assets by type and domicile of investor.
Understanding these and their variability over time helps our clients to anticipate how changes may affect asset prices.
Examine investible assets by issuer and currency
See whether a market is dominated by local or foreign investors and whether that ratio is historically stable
Know whether bonds are held mostly by less volatile holders, such as pension funds, or if they’re in looser hands, like hedge funds
Understand the ratio of benchmarked vs unconstrained investors
Track investment trends over time on a country level as
well as in an asset class
