Neudata Scout, our flagship product for data buyers, is the only objective and neutral data scouting service that is dedicated to finding alpha-generating data for investment professionals and other data users.

Why Neudata Scout?

Neudata works with data buyers across the fundamental and quant/systematic hedge fund, asset management, private equity, venture capital and corporates space to help them find the datasets best suited to their research goals.

Our team of 10 researchers scout data from around the world to discover the datasets best positioned to deliver unique, actionable insights.

  • Save time and money

    While evaluating and selecting providers, you will be able to access the historic and ongoing systematic research of our 10 full-time data scouts — including those who speak Mandarin (in Mainland China), Japanese and Spanish — including pricing intelligence, comparison tools and sample data files. Get all this for a fraction of a full-time data strategist’s salary.

  • Reduce miss rate

    Avoid wasting time and money on datasets that are unlikely to provide value. This includes providers and segments that are falling out of favour in the market, providers with significant permanency risk, and providers with warning signs on compliance factors.

  • Improve hit rate

    Find datasets that are more likely to give value, earlier than you would have found them yourself. We combine our systematic analysis on data provider suitability with our insight into market traction, which is derived from our conversations data buyers and sellers.
