Company Description

Launched in November 2008, Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in 48 countries, and soon beyond (read: Space). We have about 10,000 employees working across our Chicago headquarters, a growing office in Palo Alto, CA, local markets throughout North America and regional offices in Europe, Latin America, Asia and around the world. Our company philosophy is pretty simple: we treat our customers the way we like to be treated. That boils down to a few key things: We sell stuff we want to buy. A great price is only half the battle - it's also got to be a great product or service. Between our top-rated business partners and unbeatable prices, you should feel comfortable venturing out and trying something new - just because it's featured on Groupon. We want Groupon to be an addiction you can feel good about. No BS. We really want you to love Groupon. "Gotchas" and buried conditions that sour the experience are a terrible way to accomplish that goal. We want each Groupon purchase to feel too good to be true, from the moment you buy to the day you use it. If there's anything unusual about a deal (e.g. an inconvenient location) we go out of our way to point it out

Penserra Capital Management offers ETF sub-advisory services to exchange traded funds (ETFs). The firm subscribes to the objectivity of statistical models in evaluating the risk and exposure associated with the restructuring of transition portfolios as well as the construction and maintenance of ETFs. In their view, the key to producing a successful portfolio outcome for transition management is capital preservation and for ETF management is low tracking error relative to the benchmark. As such, Penserra Capital Management analyze the attributes of the initial portfolio and benchmark portfolios to determine the most risk-averse method for restructuring assets or tracking the benchmark. They measure the performance of a portfolio relative to an implementation shortfall benchmark for transition management and relative to tracking difference and tracking error for ETF management.
