Challenges - Transparency, relevancy, value and costs
The over 500 specialized alternative data providers make it challenging and expensive to sort through, identify, test and integrate value-adding data sets that match one's needs and requirements.
Further, the majority of the alternative DPs collect and sell this data in the form of large-scale data feeds with fixed pricing structures upwards of $50k a year to large and quantitative, data-crunching asset managers. Discretionary & fundamental managers, however, are still unable to easily access and leverage this data.
Mission - Organizing, clearing and revamping accessibility of alternative data
At DDQIR we solve the transparency and accessibility gap by allowing investors efficient screening and targeted, flexible on-demand purchasing of relevant alternative data and insights - on a ticker & query level.
Find and leverage alternative data according to your current needs and pay as you go on a case by case basis.
