IPE Conference and Awards 2016

Welcome to the eVestment Workshop 2016

Shining the Light on Shadow Searches: Will They Replace RFPs?

Friday, 02 December 11:40 - 12:30

Shadow searches are helping to significantly reduce the time investors and consultants spend screening and researching managers and building buy-lists. A manager’s story goes well beyond performance: what does the data tell you about a product and how it fits your needs? 

The eVestment Workshop 2016 will help investors understand the best way to use online databases for shadow searches and will explore how some pension funds are relying solely on databases to select and monitor managers – doing away with the timely and exhaustive RFP process. 

Asset managers will also learn what investors and consultants are currently considering.


Christophe Frèrebeau is director, head of EMEA at eVestment, overseeing Europe, Middle East and Africa operations. Frèrebeau joined eVestment in 2012 after its acquisition of Fundspire, an analytics and reporting platform for hedge funds and hedge fund investors that he founded and headed.

With a master's in engineering, Frèrebeau built Fundspire from the ground up and has extensive experience across technology, sales, marketing, product development and client service.
