Pageant provides a combination of proprietary data, actionable insights and events across a range of asset classes, including hedge funds, traditional asset management, private equity, real estate and credit/debt. Pageant has more than 2500 institutional clients, who use its products to effectively allocate assets, raise funds and run their businesses better, says the company.

Eurekahedge has a rich heritage of 20 years of tracking hedge fund performance. Specialising in hedge fund databases covering North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America, Eurekahedge’s alternative asset funds databases are extensive and precise with indices updated by an average of 96% by month-end. The database tracks over 220 data points, which is why investors, asset managers and service providers to the industry rely on Eurekahedge’s data and analysis of hedge fund performance to make informed decisions, says Pageant Media.

Eurekahedge is a strategic fit for Pageant, complementing and enriching its existing hedge fund brand, HFM. The integration of Eurekahedge with HFM strengthens Pageant’s market position providing scale and reach in the global hedge fund space.
