Style, Trend, Analysis & Research (STAR) Report

The STAR Report offers a rich context for defining a firm’s investment product positioning and marketing strategy by analyzing asset flows on thousands of tax-exempt separate account and commingled fund products and institutional and retail mutual funds. The STAR Report provides detailed information on the most successful asset classes, organizations, and products within 27 broad asset class styles by calculating AUM and net asset growth broken out by asset type. Key findings from the report are presented to clients via webinar twice a year.
