Vendor Solutions Webinar

  • Yesterday, we Eagle Alpha was joined by over 50 vendors for a panel discussion on removing inefficiencies from the data trial process.
  • Eagle Alpha’s Director of Data Sourcing & Partnerships, Hugh O’Connor moderated the discussion, lead by panelists:
    • Dave Schwartz, Former Head of Data Acquisition & Strategy, Coatue Management & Ex- Citadel
    • Rob Morse, Head of Data Strategy & Sourcing, PDT Partners
    • Thomas Combes, Head of Data Science, Eagle Alpha

    Key takeaways from the panel discussion:

    • Buy-side vertical is highly regulated because of which there is a high level of scrutiny to evaluate data as compared to other buyer verticals.
    • To accelerate the trial process it is important for buyers to have complete information about data and ensure compliance check. Supporting documents like tearsheet and DDQ makes the process efficient and reduces the time lag between interest and testing.
    • Having historic trial data readily available in different formats will reduce the timeline and will also keep the researcher’s interest ongoing.

    If you are interested to learn more about making trial data available, contact our team.

We are encouraging vendors to submit offerings/products that are new to market in the past 6 months.  This allows you to review their latest updates to engage with them in 1-1s for targeted conversations.  We will send you the list of vendors who have submitted before the conference for bookings.


Industry Intel

  • ‘AI-led hedge funds produced cumulative returns of 34 percent in the three years through May, a report Tuesday from consulting and research firm Cerulli shows. That compares with a 12 percent gain for the global hedge fund industry over the same period.’ Click here to read the article.
  • ‘Many investors have turned to so-called alternative data — niche information beyond standard financial market indicators or statistical releases — after finding official numbers too slow in reflecting the collapse in economic activity due to Covid, and the recovery. Providers argue it can provide precious, real-time glimpses into how a company or economy is faring.’ Click here to read the article.
