Using Alternative Data in Investment Decision Making

Aug 26, 2020 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

Join Chief Data Scientist Michael Recce to discuss how investment firms can better integrate data analytics in the investment decision-making process and tap alternative data sources to enhance security analysis.

Alternative data from non-traditional sources can uncover and validate investment opportunities and manage risks. Professional investors can also benefit from alternative data when past data is no longer relevant — especially during periods of high economic uncertainty or when industries or companies experience extraordinary change.

Learn how investment firms apply advanced analytical tools to alternative data and integrate the results into their investment process. Recce will discuss how analytics and alternative data can provide early signals for changing trends, such as customer behavior and more.
