Alternative Data in Finance


View Event Page


This meet-up focuses on alternative data in finance, referring to data used by investors to evaluate a company or investment that is not within their traditional data sources (financial statements, SEC filings, management presentations, press releases, etc.). Alternative data helps investors get more accurate, faster, and more granular insights and metrics into a company's performance than with traditional data sources.

Over the last 10 years, increases in computing power and personal device usage created massive growth in data generation. As a direct outcome, a large number of companies emerged to collect, clean, analyze, and interpret data and provide it as a product that could inform investment decisions.
