Industry Intel

  • ‘The global prevalence of the internet has brought with it alternative data sets that can help us monitor all three elements discussed on almost a daily basis. Several studies have highlighted the predictive power of Google searches for short-term forecast of economic data in developed markets – a fact borne out by our research, too.’ Click here to read the article.
  • ‘Thedata sets were viewed by Wall Street as a secondary need in the world of alternative data, as they usually had to be paired with other information —credit-card receipts, for example —to create an investment signal. Clientele for the data was often limited to a handful of well-resourced funds and banks with serious data-science chops.’ Click here to read the article.
