Alternative Data

Alternative data refers to data that is not traditionally used in financial analysis and includes sources such as mainstream media, social media, cell phone data, sensor data, business processes, and satellite imagery.

With advances in technology, this data is easier, faster and cheaper to access. This coupled with advances in computing power and analytics have led to a surge in interest from investment firms, who are increasingly looking to alternative data to provide insight that will give them an edge in the market place.

Alternative data is used to identify investment opportunities; assist in risk management; measure consumer sentiment; understand supply chains; and in the identification of changing trends.

Belo Investment Research specializes in sourcing and analyzing alternative data to develop intelligence that enables investment managers to anticipate market movements ahead of time and generate returns.
