Alternative Data

Access a range of alternative datasets delivered in near real-time to reveal new opportunities for differentiated alpha, identify first movers against analyst consensus or provide leading indicators to fundamentals which when published drive market price movements.

Proprietary research insights support due diligence on stocks being considered for portfolio entry. Sometimes, the view from the sky does not match the report from the investment banker so additional intelligence provides a valuable evidence-based indicator. Once under management, research is used to monitor assets providing fundamentals ahead of quarterly reports whilst also tracking ESG and CSR factors.
