Metro Targeting: Boston

Each month the eight analysts in Ipreo’s Capital Market Services US team compile and analyze data from across the financial markets.

The following cities are included in this monthly rotation:

  • San Francisco
  • Paris
  • Chicago
  • Hong Kong
  • London
  • Boston
  • Toronto
  • Los Angeles
  • Singapore
  • Philadelphia
  • Tokyo
  • New York

Ipreo uses that data to produce our Asia Metro Targeting Reports, which offer insight into the metro’s activity, as compared to the Global average.

The data uses the most recent quarterly findings from both Ipreo’s Equity Deals Database and DAVOS for ownership information. Together, this data provides interesting insight into historical information, investor activity, sector allocation activity and the domicile allocations information.

This June, the focus is on Boston. Ipreo produces two reports on the area every month, one covering all of Asia except Japan, and one covering Japan’s activity individually. Below are excerpts and links to each Boston-based report.
