Our Story

Established in 2012, Eagle Alpha is the pioneer connecting the universe of alternative data.

Established in 2012, Eagle Alpha is the pioneer connecting the universe of alternative data.

First adopted by alpha-seeking hedge funds over 10 years ago, alternative data is now being sought for use in the wider asset management space, as well as the private equity and corporate verticals.

In parallel, there is an explosive increase in the supply of alternative datasets, as many corporates are looking to monetize their exhaust data and new technologies enable the emergence of new alternative data vendors.

Eagle Alpha was one of the first companies to recognize the value from these new data sources and has been investing in educating and connecting alternative data vendors and buyers since 2012, in the process building trusted relationships with both sides of this market.

As of June 1st, 2020, Eagle Alpha partners with over 1,275 data vendors and data buyers across the buyside, private equity and corporates, government agencies and central banks.

Eagle Alpha’s solutions mirror the user journey of its clients. There are three steps in the vendor user journey: discovery phase, productization and go-to-market. There are three steps in the buyer user journey: data strategy, discovery and prioritization, delivery and insights.
