Extract Actionable Intelligence From Alternative Data To Improve Alpha

What Is Alternative Data?

Traditionally, investment managers source data from conventional data sources like company financials, investor presentations, SEC filings, analyst research, and press releases.

Alternative data represents data sets collected from non-traditional sources. These non-traditional sources include, social media data, private company data, credit card data, supply chain data, web traffic, search trends, bank loan & credit data, point-of-sale data, satellite imagery, weather, and similar non-traditional data sources.

How Are Hedge Funds Applying Alternative Data?

With the rise of data science subsets, like machine learning, deep learning, and AI, hedge funds are able to analyze large sets of data in relatively short amounts of time to extract actionable intelligence. Early adopter hedge fund managers are using a multitude of alternative data sources in creative ways to find new investment opportunities, as well as complement their current investment strategies.
