Achieving alpha is not only an art, it is a science.
The proliferation and richness of data available to the financial services sector is already proving a profoundly disruptive force. For the asset management industry, harnessing its potential is a real and urgent challenge. Most firms are well aware that maximizing their data is the critical enabler in the hunt for alpha. Their challenge is this: how to make better use of that data to position it at the top of the decision-making value chain?
Those firms that continued to shine by maximizing alpha through the past pandemic-hit year have one thing in common.
They recognize that intelligent and transparent data interpretation is now essential for every investment decision. This means a full embrace of data science, based on insights and ideas generated from multiple new sources of information, as well as deeper analysis of traditional data streams.
In partnership with WBR Insights, we surveyed 300 CEO’s, CIO’s, and Chief Data Information Officers from global asset management firms to find out what their strategies are for maximizing their data, how they incorporate that data into their investment process and their plans to leverage data science tools to optimize their investment performance.
Because achieving alpha is not only an art, it is now a science, too.
