New York-based investment industry research firm Strategic Insight Inc. announced Thursday that it has appointed Christopher Davis as head of U.S. fund research.

Davis will be responsible for “shaping SI’s team of U.S. research analysts as they develop high caliber research deliverables covering the largest asset management market in the world,” Strategic Insight says in a statement.

Previously, Davis worked as an analyst and research director at Chicago-based Morningstar, Inc., where he evaluated equity, fixed income, and multi-asset investment strategies, primarily in the U.S., for 19 years.

Over that time, he introduced qualitative ratings on target-risk and ETFs and was the editor of Morningstar’s Fidelity Funds Newsletter. Davis also led Morningstar’s Canadian fund research team from 2012 to 2016. At Strategic Insight, Davis “plans to harness the power of the SI data platforms to explore new research opportunities.”
