Asset International Creates New FRC Division of Strategic Insight from Acquired Business Lines

Significant Investment Planned to Strengthen, Enhance and Expand Acquired FRC Products
 
Nov. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Key business lines of Financial Research Corporation (FRC) have been acquired by Asset International, Inc. to form a new division of Strategic Insight.

All of the acquired business lines will retain the FRC brand, including the Monitor, Lifecycle, Market Sizing, Sub-Advisory, Alternatives and 529 college savings product lines. Mike Rosenthal is General Manager of the new FRC division.  As Asset International’s Senior Vice President of Operations, he also co-manages Strategic Insight and remains responsible for Asset International’s operations as a whole. FRC’s operations will be based out of Asset International’s Boston office.

“We perceive considerable value in the more-than-two-decades-old FRC brand, and expect FRC’s client base to respond positively to the investments we are prepared to make in each of the product lines,” said Jim Casella, Asset International’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

According to Mr. Rosenthal, “This is a major opportunity to strengthen, enhance and extend FRC’s products via Asset International and Strategic Insight’s extensive resources and expertise.” He emphasized that all pre-acquisition subscriptions of the acquired product lines will be honored, and there will be no significant interruption in service for FRC clients.

Mr. Casella added, “The new FRC division is a good fit with Strategic Insight’s business.  FRC’s clients can expect the FRC products to deliver even greater value over time.”

Kathleen Marshall, who will remain Director of Sales at FRC, said, “The FRC team is very excited about what this acquisition means in regard to the enhancement of FRC products and our ability to provide clients with timely information and data of the highest quality.”
