Eagle Alpha enables Asset Managers to obtain alpha from Alternative Data.
Eagle Alpha was founded in 2012 with the sole focus of enabling asset managers to obtain alpha from alternative data.
Since 2012 Eagle Alpha has built a product team that is modelled on similar teams of ‘data factories’ at asset management firms. There are four groups that make up our product team: 1) data sourcing professionals whose task is to hunt for and profile datasets; 2) analysts with buyside and sellside experience that understand asset classes and investigate strategies; 3) data scientists that have strong quantitative skills for backtesting and data exploration; and 4) engineers to deliver our solution to clients.
Asset management clients include quantitative funds, discretionary hedge funds and traditional mutual funds. We work with clients that are starting to integrate alternative data into their investment process as well as the most sophisticated users of alternative data. Our solution is focused on education (teach-ins and thought leadership) and alpha (bespoke projects, data insights, analytical tools and data sourcing).
The most popular part of our offering is the Data Sourcing solution. It aggregates the best third-party datasets worldwide (currently 515) and also our (quasi) proprietary and proprietary datasets.
We are a recognized leader in the alternative data space. We regularly host flagship events on alternative data in New York, London and Hong Kong, we author some of the most highly regarded content on the topic, and we have been heavily referenced in alternative data primers by the largest investment banks in the world.
Our vision is to be the ‘go-to’ firm for the alternative data needs of asset managers.
