About us

MandateWire is a leading source of institutional asset management intelligence. It’s a financial information database delivering high-value sales intelligence, market data and analysis to the European, North American and Asian institutional investment market.

By leveraging close relationships with many leading global institutional investors, MandateWire provides fund managers, investment banks and specialist investment houses with well-timed and credible intelligence on investor strategies and business opportunities.

With a particular focus on hard-to-find private information, MandateWire is a proven sales and business development tool providing reports on confirmed and forthcoming tenders, as well as analysis of market trends and finalised deals. Our database holds key contact details for over 9,500 institutional investors, with a combined known worth of over $56tn in 2015. 

With MandateWire, you can extract reports on a single investor, on particular consultants and managers, or institutional investors around the world. Search results can also be split into equities, fixed income and alternatives, so you can view activity in those asset classes.

We have skilled, multi-lingual journalists and researchers based in London, New York, Hong Kong and Manila. Engaging with investors in their native language, they focus on relationship-building within their specific market: this leads to unique and dependable institutional intelligence.
