Greenwich Associates Research on Alternative Data
Research on alternative data, and how it is used
Arcadia Data commissioned research with Greenwich Associates to bring intelligence to market on how hedge fund traders, chief investment officers, chief data officers, portfolio managers, and analysts are effectively using alternative data. Much of the attention has been around creating trading strategies with an edge (generating alpha). But it also applies to risk management and enhanced regulatory oversight.
“We expect to learn more about how portfolio managers use new types of data and how the front office view alternative data sources as inputs to the risk management process,” says Kevin McPartland Head of Market Structure & Technology Research at Greenwich Associates.
