In 2012 our founder was inspired to set up Eagle Alpha by a hedge fund manager – the basic premise was that the amount of alternative data being created worldwide is growing exponentially however the majority of buyside firms weren’t taking advantage of it.
The last major change to the investment process of buyside firms was the introduction of expert networks in the late 90s. In our opinion, the next major change to the investment process of buyside firms is the incorporation of alternative data.
Since our incorporation in 2012 we have been dedicated to enabling the buyside obtain alpha from alternative data. Eagle Alpha’s ambitious vision is to be the one stop shop for alternative data – the ‘Bloomberg for alternative data’.
