Gygmy Gonnot, Head of Client Solutions, Vidrio Financial stated, “Vidrio’s level of innovation and scalability over the last year has strengthened considerably to meet allocators' growing needs in private markets, particularly in private credit. It is clear that increased allocations to private markets require improved technology and tools to improve decision-making across a new breed of multi-asset class portfolios.  We believe Vidrio is well-positioned to serve institutional investors targeting these blended private market allocations by combining advanced software tools and data management intelligence.

Vidrio’s premiere risk management system allows investors to run portfolio stress tests across various historical scenarios or factor shocks while learning how interest rates, volatility, inflation and more can impact multi-asset class portfolio risk and performance.

Vidrio and AW survey: Investors’ appetite undeterred by denominator effect

The big bad wolf for anyone worried about allocation to private markets of late has been the ‘denominator effect’, the concern that private markets would stand out as overweight as other parts of institutional portfolios took hits on performance, meaning rebalancing would work against the sector.

Backlash Hasn’t Kept ESG From Seeping Further Into Asset Management — And Compensation

More asset managers are using ESG to weigh the risk and opportunities of their investments, with some using it to measure employee performance, according to a Vidrio survey. More and more, asset managers are using environmental, social, and governance factors to evaluate investments — in spite of the recent backlash. Some are even using ESG metrics in their compensation plans, according to a report by portfolio management platform Vidrio Financial.

Why are anti-ESG funds like YALL and MAGA losing steam?

Anti-ESG funds typically exclude companies that consider “environmental, social and governance” (ESG) risks, and often attract investors based on their political preferences. The anti-ESG category includes funds such as “God Bless America ETF” (YALL), “Point Bridge America First ETF” (MAGA), and the U.S. Energy ETF of Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy’s Strive (DRLL).That political appeal works, although the anti-ESG category remains a David to the ESG’s Goliath: By mid-2023, anti-ESG funds had about $2.42 billion in assets under management, Morningstar reported, 100 times smaller than funds that did integrate ESG factors ($313.4 billion). After reaching a peak in inflows in Q3 2022, Morningstar said, anti-ESG funds such as Ramaswamy’s “quickly lost steam.”
