Pavilion Global Markets: Best Global Portfolio Strategy Team North America 2020


Pavilion Global Markets (PGM) traces its origins to 1968 and has an unchanged goal: to deliver best execution trading to its institutional clients. In 2020, the Canadian firm’s service suite includes equity execution, transition management and global macro research. The portfolio strategy team is a cornerstone of PGM operations and produces detailed, laser-sharp reports on targeted topics. These dossiers are excellent tools for client engagement and provide actionable insights for institutional investors, plan sponsors, sector analysts and quantitative fund managers. The aim is for integrated analysis over a medium-term horizon of nine to 12 months. PGM crunches numbers, then digs deeper to uncover investment opportunities — and risks. It explores the impacts of macro events on asset classes (equities, fixed income, commodities and currencies) across a wide range of developed and emerging market economies. Research notes are published throughout the week and unshared material is collated into a Friday publication entitled Out of Focus. PGM has created upwards of 10,000 charts which are updated in real time and widely recognised as reliable reference tools. They also offers bespoke research services, which have proven useful for pension funds. As an independent organisation, PGM is not afraid to challenge the consensus. The judging panel declares Pavilion Global Markets winner of the 2020 award for Best Global Portfolio Strategy Team (North America).
