Neudata’s showpiece Summit returns to London this Autumn, bringing together Investment Managers, Asset Allocators, Data & Service Providers and industry experts from across the globe. Our last events, and many others, have heard multiple funds and providers talk about ‘why’ alternative data – this event is all about the ‘how’!
How much alpha (if any) has decayed from transactional data?
How and when can I crawl websites for data? Is life simpler if someone does it for me?
What are the key factors to use to evaluate 100s of data providers?
What analysis / cleansing / data management solutions are being adopted? And why?
This event will provide deep dives into these and many other practical questions related to alternative data.
You will find a diverse mix of data providers – from the well-adopted providers with hundreds of clients, to brand new-to-market providers with unique offerings. In addition, a key strand of this event will be dedicated to the technology and services that funds can use to analyse and integrate data into their investment process.
Neudata will partner with a roster of leading funds, providers and partners to deliver panels, workshops, seminars and one-to-one meetings in our showcase, two-day, summit.
