MELBOURNE, Australia (– Standard & Poor’s has combined its fund ratings team with that of recently acquired ASSIRT as it organizing a rating group by sector for Australia.

The merging of the ratings teams follows S&P’s acquisition of ASSIRT from St. George Bank in February.

Sector heads will be assigned among five areas of coverage: boutiques and small caps; multi-managers and multi-sectors; international equities; alternative assets and structured products; and fixed income and fund credit ratings and Australian equities.
