3:55 PM The book of alternative data
In this talk, we give a sneak peek of The Book of Alternative Data, which is to be published in early 2020. We briefly discuss some of the challenges when using alternative such as structuring it and quantifying its value, as well as the risks involved. We'll go through a few of the use cases from book. These include using automotive supply chain data to trade auto stocks, satellite imagery to model retailers earnings per share and news data to understand FX volatility around central bank meetings.
