Strengthen financial models with alternative data

Investment portfolio management - illustration

In the financial world—especially in the field of hedge funds and high-frequency trading—using predictive analytics can increase decision-making accuracy and speed. Equity trading, for example, leverages data algorithms that recognise signals from a wide variety of data types to make ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ decisions in split seconds. But machine learning datasets and algorithms algorithms are only as good as the data that goes into them.
