Alternative (Data) Lifestyle: Capturing Alpha in APAC

November 30, 2021 @ 3:30 pm

Tuesday, November 30

We used to say “news moves markets.”   But can you fill in the idea-generation gaps when there is no news, or economic releases?  Is Alt Data in Asia/Pacific maturing to the point where one can process events - regularly - with a high degree of success (alpha)?  Who in the region is providing Alt Data and the associated curation technology, how is the data sourced; what’s the take-up been like?  

  • What’s the performance track record for Alt Data in Asia/Pacific?  Who’s using it?
  • How has COVID-19 impacted Alt Data?  Are Alt Data consumer spending products collecting e-commerce transactions? 
  • Curation and processing alternatives: what is provided “as a Service”; can it be combined with other KPI data - easily? 
  • Can Alt Data providers generate “panic indexes”?
  • Where can APAC Alt Data be acquired: Alt Data “boutiques”, Data Vendors, Data Marketplaces(DMs)?
