Chinese pension provider picks Style Analytics software

Business_analyticsA major Chinese pension provider has chosen to use portfolio analysis software from London-based Style Analytics. China Life Pension Company, a subsidiary of China’s largest life insurer, has about 267 billion renminbi ($39 billion) under management. It was founded in 2006 to provide pension services to state-owned and private businesses. “This cooperation with Style Analytics is aligned with China Life’s vision of keeping abreast of development trends within the industry as we strive to maintain our leading position in China’s pension industry and forge ahead with our transformation into a world-class life,” said Lawrence Wang, manager China Life Pension Company. Earlier this year, Style Analytics changed its name from Style Research to reflect its focus on providing factor-based analysis software. “We are honoured that an institution as venerable as China Life Pension Company has researched the market and selected us as their partner of choice,” said Sebastien Rousette, chief executive of Style Analytics. ©2018 funds global asia
