Index Solutions Overview

As the focus shifts towards more passive strategies and ETFs, cost pressure increases, driving the need for innovative, market-relevant products and building infrastructure to support growth. Acuity Knowledge Partners is one of the leading global third-party vendors of index support with more than 15 years of experience in supporting some of the top benchmark index providers. We offer end-to-end index support services under one roof – we provide reference and index data and analysis, index creation and index operations across strategy, benchmark index and thematic indices, index marketing and client servicing.
