Backstop to Acquire BarclayHedge Backstop Solutions Group, a cloud-based CRM provider for institutional and alternative investors, is set to acquire BarclayHedge, which produces alternative investment data and indices. In a release issued today, BackStop says that adding BarclayHedge to its portfolio of acquired companies represents a significant step in its long-term vision of a productivity suite for institutional and alternative investors. “With proprietary access to the 2,200 alternative investment managers and 6,900 funds tracked by BarclayHedge, Backstop will be able to offer institutional clients a unique combination of technology, tools, services and data to help optimise their research management and due diligence workflows. Alternative asset managers who currently report to BarclayHedge will also benefit by having their exposure to asset owners potentially triple when the client communities of both Backstop and BarclayHedge are combined,” it says in the release.
