Why alternative data and how you can benefit from it

Alternative data can provide additional incremental insights that are not captured by traditional market data or be more frequently available than financial reports and yet of fundamental value for your investment decisions.

 

Novel data sets can help you

  • better inform and structure your investment decisions

  • reduce research costs

  • uncover investment opportunities and generate alpha

  • enrich risk and allocation models

Approximtely 95% of the global data has been created in the last three years*, with its amount more than doubling each year. The new data production is far ahead of it being disseminated and priced into the financial markets.

Whether it's noisy news data published by millions of sources, or data generated through individuals' activity or exhausted as a byproduct of business processes - if structured, filtered and denoised it can provide valuable information either in its cleaned, structured form or as metrics and indicators derived on top.
