Big Data and AI Strategies: 2019 Alternative Data Handbook
The J.P. Morgan Alternative Data Handbook is an extension to our 2017 primer on applying Big Data and AI techniques to investment decisions. In this report we provide a global directory of alternative data products and services. The directory includes a listing of alternative data products broken down by asset class and region, and a list of alternative data vendors categorized by data source (e.g. data collected from individual activities, business processes, sensors.). Listings include links to the data vendors’ websites, product descriptions, and the frequency, delivery method, format, and source of the data. In the introduction to the directory we analyze recent data usage trends in the investment world, and in the Appendix we summarize the results of a survey we conducted recently among data vendors around the globe.
