S&P Capital IQ’s Money Market Directories (MMD), a leading source of financial research and data on the institutional investor market, has announced the expansion of data on Asian-Pacific institutional funds to its online application, MMD WebAccess (www.mmdwebaccess.com). This expanded coverage allows capital-raising professionals and others to directly access information about Asia’s growing and active investment community.

The Asian-Pacific database is offered as either a standalone product or as part of MMD International, a comprehensive database of institutional funds located in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and South America. This new, regionally-focused reference tool is the latest addition to S&P Capital IQ’s Money Market Directories’ powerhouse of international products, including Global Family Offices, a global database of the ultra high-net worth community of single and multi-family offices and their service providers; and MMD Institutional Consultants, a global database of consulting firms servicing the institutional industry.

“Global and intra-regional investment have increased significantly as Asian and other investors accelerate their search for good opportunities worldwide,” comments Jay Zachter, managing director at S&P Capital IQ. “The expansion of our Asia/Pacific coverage is just one of many steps S&P Capital IQ has taken to raise awareness of these opportunities and foster relationships between institutional managers and investors internationally.”
